In July of 2010 I headed north to spend some days exploring the region around the highest point in Oregon: Mount Hood. I was SO surprised to discover that the Timberline ski area on the southern slope of Mount Hood offers the only year-round lift-served skiing in North Amer­i­ca. Evidently there are numerous summer ski camps up there, which I can attest to, as I saw lots of cars, vans and buses, and many, many youth on skis and snow­boards.
 
Around 5:00 one morning I fired up my 2009 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 truck and head­ed up a one-lane gravel road to an el­e­va­tion of over 5,800 feet to watch the sun rise! The end of the road is the historic (built 1889) Cloud Cap Inn. It was a long, dusty drive, and I was sure glad I had a 4x4! But the view was spectacular, and was so worth the drive! All the photos of Mount Hood in this album were taken over a period of three days, mostly from the south and north sides of the mountain.

For more pictures taken on and around this captivating mountain, see the Mount Hood Summer Solstice 2015 album.
The photos in this album were taken with the Panasonic HDC-TM700K camera.
