Mt Hood

On Friday we took a trip up to Mt Hood for the day. We started at Trillium Lake and it was too windy to get a good reflection shot, but it was still a beautiful sunny day.

The boys LOVED catching salamanders in the lake.

We drove around to a few spots and it's really incredible to see what the melting snowpack can expand to fill!

We stopped at Timberline Lodge, which I had never been inside.

It's a cool lodge!

After the lodge and some good food at a local joint in Government Camp, we returned to the lake to wait for sunset. I loved this bright red canoe standing out on lake.

Apparently, decent sunset shots are extremely hard to come by here, and I don't have the proximity to come night after night to get one, so I'll take what I can and be happy with it and a great day.
