On Thursday, we drove down to the area around Mt. Hood. We first stopped off at the ranger station to get our backcountry recreation passes. We then drove around the south side of Mount Hood to the Mirror Lake trail. The trail goes 1.5 miles up the mountain to the lake, where you can get some great views of Mt. Hood reflected in the lake. That is, if there isn’t a million people there; it’s a popular trail.
We then drove to Trillium Lake, where there are other good views of the mountain. Once again, there were a lot of people and a lot of waves because of them, but I did the best I could with combinations of long-exposures:
After that, we drove back to Hood River, and ate dinner at the Trillium Cafe.
