Snow Fun.....

Yesterday took us up to Mt Hood for our "annual after Thanksgiving play in the snow trek". There was fresh snowfall, and a pending storm on the way, but it didn't seem to stop anyone, the place was packed.

It was like a magical day, we left the house late, got up to the Mt. and the parking was hopeless, and just by chance the guy in front of our rig was pulling out, so we got parking before the 200 or so ppl in line. We forgot our sled, and dd was about to be bummed out about it when someone offered us one that had been left behind by another... So we "disked" for a couple of hours.

The weather couldn't have been more perfect, about 45-50 degrees, no wind, sunshine everywhere, we got by with polar fleece jackets. (Of course we brought the heavy duty stuff too, but didn't need it) and on our drive home, we happened upon the view point just as the sun was setting and it gave us the "alpine glow" effect, I snapped a few quick shots, as the window of light is about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes total.... I cannot tell you how many times I have drove up there, waited and never got the alpine glow....

So all in all, it was wonderful! Here are some shots from the day, snapshots really, I didn't go up planning to shoot except us playing in the snow, so these are all off the cuff, enjoy!

More to come!

These are dynamite. I would love to see county like this in person. Wonderful shots. All of them, from the last two posts as well.

I like the golden mountain shot, and also the one below of the trees in shade, but the mountain still in sunlight.
