Mt Hood has received quite a bit of snow lately, and I’ve had a couple of recent opportunities to photograph this big hill in my backyard!.I grabbed this image as I drove into Boring, Oregon on 282nd just at sunset.  The light was amazing – not only producing a beautiful “alpenglow” on the snow-covered flanks of the Mountain, but it was also lighting the church and the community in the valley below. I quickly pulled over — making my wife wait in the car while I jumped across the street with my camera! (Click on the image to see a larger version).

Here is another shot of the Mountain from a different perspective.  This was shot high on the Mountain as I went over Barlow Pass, just before reaching Government Camp.  This is just across from a historic site on the Mountain along the original Barlow Road,
