Mt. Hood as seen from the Columbia River near Wintler Park


Although much of the sky was as blue as could be, parts closer to Mt. Hood had wispy clouds BUT this is the first time in many days that I have even been able to see THE MOUNTAIN. I took this from the peninsula that juts out into the Columbia River. You can see traffic on the bridge and even a boat in the river. This morning, we have the dense fog back but it is expected to lift by afternoon and be in the 50's again. And they call this winter? Glad we aren't having the below freezing most of the rest of the country is having. CLICK to enlarge.

I liked that one - both picture and mountain. Is it a volcano, or does it just look that way?

PS Thank you for all the nice comment! :-)

Me again. I forgot to mention post I made in December that is primarily about a Norwegian female author, but that also contains a couple of benches.

I can see the tree in the back yard now, but barely anything acorss the road. No mountain views likely today.

Your weather sounds like HEAVEN! It was well below zero here in Ontario this morning when I got up. The mountain is beautiful even if it is faint. ;-)

This makes me think of a Japanese painting. That mountain sure is spectacular! Love it.

That's a really beautiful view. We don't have mountains like that around here.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
