Lookout Mountain – Cold! But Great Views!

My buddy Dale Hill and I took a quick hike up to the top of Lookout Mountain just South of Hood River, Oregon right after a big snow storm came through Nov. 17. We slogged through a couple of feet of powder snow in the warm sun following the storm. Look at those trees behind Dale!      img0065a

BRRR! As we neared the top of Lookout Mountain, you can see from the way the ice and snow is plastered on this dead snag how the wind whipped through the Cascade Range and plastered the snow and ice right onto the trees. img0067a

Then just below the summit we saw this perfect little spruce all decorated out in natures finery with the watershed hills of The Dalles in the background.

Finally, looking back to the West a bit higher, Mount Hood, 11,249 feet (3,429 m) looms in the distance against the stark blue of the sky.  Now that’s one Gorgeous Mountain! Love it!
