Up where it's springtime

Our friend Doug the Mountain Climber writes:

Here’s a shot from a long hike yesterday (~15 mi, 3,000’ up and down including lots of scrambling) through the lovely alpine lake area called Jefferson Park just north of Mt. Jefferson to Park Ridge 1,000’ above the "Park." Although the generally grey skies meant that the light was mostly flat, I did catch a few moments of sun and clearing. At 7,000’, there are still substantial patches of snow along with "spring" alpine wildflowers. The view to the north shows Mt. Hood in the distance along with smoke behind Ollalie Butte from several wildfires caused by lightning a few days ago. Enjoy!

Lots of wildflowers on Mt. Hood still. Just take a drive up to Timberline and take a stroll of some of the trails. It's a great place to be on a sunny day.

Not necessarily. Try driving by Trillium Lake and just about every Tom, Dick, and Harry is out there with his kid, an inflatable raft, and a cooler of Keystone.

plenty of places on Mt. Hood to get away from the crowds. It's a pretty big mountain.
