Mount Hood

If you're out and about near Portland, and the sky is clear, Mount Hood is visible. To a guy from the Midwest, massiveness of the mountain rising above everything else is startling. Here are four photos I took during the four days I was in Oregon.

From the apple-growing region near the small town of Dee south of Hood River.

Another shot from the same area, with the top of apple trees and a soaring Turkey Vulture visible in the foreground.

And from in front of our hotel on Hayden Island north of Portland, looking east down the Columbia River. I find this view the most startling of all. That's a lot of mountain.
