the case of the missing mountain


The Empty Nest Hiking Club went snowshoeing up at Mt Hood Saturday. We decided to go on the Trillium Lake trail. According to our snowshoe book, it's a 5 mile loop that, at the approximate midpoint, features a picture postcard view of Mt Hood from across a frozen lake. It was a beautiful day with blue skies, and we were ready for the spectacular view with my camera and Hubby's camcorder. Only one problem. When we got to "the spot", a huge bank of clouds had rolled in, obscuring the view of the mountain. And the clouds decided to stay put for the remainder of the day.

Aaargh!

Even so, it was still a pretty trail and we had a lot of fun.

The mountain's probably just taking a union break. Next time, like HCL said.

The igloo was impressive! (And the people were friendly -- they invited us for cheese and crackers but we kept on snow-shoein') :)

I turned up the volume on my computer with a smile on my face before clicking to start the show :)


that's looks like it was a fun day in spite of the clouds. Quoting christmas vacation "I can picture it in my mind and it looks beautiful!"

Brewskies in the Igloo?
