The Teardrop & Mount Hood!
One last view of Hood before the clouds roll in….
Mount Hood peeking out above Timberline Lodge
In 1980, Timberline Lodge served as the exterior set for the isolated Overlook Hotel in the Shining, starring Jack Nicholson.
Timberline Lodge Lobby. A pretty nice office for the afternoon!
Timberline Lodge Sunday Brunch Buffet! As epic as the view of Mount Hood right outside the window…
Now for an epic hike to work off that epic breakfast buffet! Nine miles around Mirror Lake and up Tom, Dick & Harry Ridge!
Mirror Lake is famous for reflecting Mount Hood. Not today! After my brief lucky glimpse of Hood that morning, the clouds rolled in.
Tom, Dick & Harry Ridge D.O.G. This has long been one of my favorite hikes in Oregon. On clear days, Mount Hood is startling close. On this day, you wouldn’t even know a volcano looms on the other side of this ridge!
