As you ascend the south side of the mountain toward Timerline Lodge you remember that this is a potentially active volcano. I guess those who live in a country with no volcanos and very few high mountains that knowledge hightens the experience. The views are great, just walking around the Lodge and taking in the feel of the place makes... More

How do you even begin to describe this place? The drive in from Hood River is incredible. The forest, the rivers, the views. It's all unbelievable. Then when you finally reach the tree line its just as spectacular. The jagged rocky cliffs and peak. It's amazing. I love going places and seeing things, and if you are in this part... More

If you're traveling to the Portland area, you should find time to take this side trip to Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge. The views are just picturesque and stunning. Words don't do it justice. The camera can only do so much with what you can capture better using your own eyes.

We truly enjoyed our time in the mountains. It was lovely and plenty to see and photograph. Actually, it would have been better if we'd had another week.

Mount Hood is a volcano that is snow covered year round. Skiing is available at Mt. Hood Meadows and Timberline at Government Camp. Lodging at Rippling River and Timberline Lodge. This gorgeous mountain is a beloved picturesque background seen from Portland, and South-western Washington.

Mount Hood and Timberline Lodge are gems. The highest peak in Oregon, Mt. Hood is majestic, and the Lodge, a WPA built project from 1936-37 (dedicated the same day by FDR as he did the Bonneville Dam) is overwhelming. Like no place on earth... Come and enjoy hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, eating....

Mount Hood is a beautiful day trip from Portland and a wonderful scenic spot at any time of year, whether it's seen from near or far. Fun fact: The Timberline Lodge was used for the exterior shots of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining.
