“Mt Hood and Mt Adam”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

WELL not as impressive as Mt. Shasta but beautiful just the same driving along it is hard to concentrate on your drive with all these natural wonders all around and springtime up here and all the tulips , daffodils and lilac are all in full bloom , the moist air smells so refreshing it makes the long grueling drive well worth it not to mention the fields full of fruit trees that surround the area.

“Scenic Views from Hgwy 35”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Tip: Try to go to the Lost Lake. Supposedly it has the best view. But during the winter is impossible to get there. The road was full of snow and ice. Anyways the views are amazing even if you don't reach the lake area (check my pics).

The Timberline Lodge is another place recommended by Lonely Planet to enjoy the views. But again, lots of snow around.

Lots of kids and skis and dogs and sleds & sun that day!It is an open area and you can ski up onto the shoulders of Mt Hood or stay down near the parking and find small hills for sledding .

“Clean Air, Quiet & Camera Friendly”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Looking for peace and quiet? Outdoor recreation? Well here it is and the clean air abounds at Mount Hood.

Leave Hood River, Oregon and drive south on Hwy 35 for only 16 miles where you leave the pear/apple orchards, blueberry fields and vineyards behind. Just past the Parkdale, OR turnoff you can roll down your windows or put the convertible top down to smell the pines and cool, crisp air.

Hike around the historic Cloud Cap Lodge and the Tilly Jane campground to enjoy the Northern side of Mount Hood from the 6,000 foot level right at timberline. View Mt Adams to the north which stands at 13,000+ feet and is approximately 70 miles to the north of Cloud Cap. While driving to Cloud Cap you will see the forest fire a few years ago and appreciate the power of nature and its resilience to grow anew.

Snow shoe or cross-country ski in the peace and quiet that an individual inwardly craves to gain the much needed peace of mind missing in today's life-style. Put the cell phone in the off position. Most likely it will not have a signal anyway. Those individuals whom are wise enough to come to Mount Hood should do so in both the summer and the winter seasons.

Pack an extra digital card with you because you will most likely use up the one in your camera quickly. Creeks and waterfalls are all around to photograph and listen to their soothing ripples. Large vistas and huge pines make for many postcard photo opportunities. I have lived in Hood River, OR for 14 years and I am still in awe and inspired EVERY TIME I go to the Mountain.

Please be sure to also put the camera down and take the pictures with your mind's eye. It will be with you long after your computer is gone and will last until the sun sets in the last place you will ever live. In your mind. Scott "Hawkeye" Haanstad
