Mt. Hood from the NW on...
Mt. Hood from the NW on Waucoma Ridge, near Wahtum Lake. The weather conditions causing this phenomenon are high pressure east of the Cascades, high easterly winds in the Columbia River Gorge, and a temperature inversion with cold air in the valleys east of the mountains and warm air above. The temperature change from above that line to below it was very dramatic. Photo taken on Thanksgiving Day USA, November 28, 2002.

Nice picture (as usual). Great effect and impressive that it was taken today. A 4 star winner in my book.

Thanks Dean! It was a gorgeous day out there. I was trying to hike to the highpoint of Multnomah County, but couldn't find the route quick enough, so had to settle for some great scenery. -Bob

..photo! There is nothing more to say. I've never seen the top of the mist or fog so flat, it is completely straight line! I love so much such days in the mountains, good visibility (above fog), clear blue sky, no wind....

I don't know what to call that white stuff either. It's not fog - the fog burned off after I got up there. I drove up through it, and from above it looked like usual cloud tops - irregular and brilliant white. It also left fantastic amounts of frost on the trees that melted after the fog burned off. This photo was taken sometime after the clouds cleared up. I don't know how temperature inversions work, or why the pollution stays down in the colder air, but it had a beautiful effect yesterday. -Bob

Hey Bob, I don't know if this is the case in your picture but I have been hearing a lot on the radio recently with the weather we have been having about "freezing fog". From your description, it makes me wonder if that has something to do with what you are mentioning. I noticed this today when I hiked up Silver Star Mountain. Pretty cool though whatever it is, I gotta admit. -Brian

That's exactly what was happening up there yesterday. After it burned off it was really beautiful. -Bob

This stuff made for interesting travel over the Pass near Hood on Saturday morning. I saw one pick-up pulling a horse trailer that had flipped upside down in the median as it slid off the road in the patchy ice. Once I got to the east side of the Cascades, it was then dense fog from Hood to Madras. What a mess.

Nice try, Bob. I can tell this is actually two different shots from completely different parts of the world on completely different days. You merely spliced them together.

Well, you outsmarted me on this one Paul - you can fool some of the people all of the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. Yeah, splicing those pix together was a tough job, but someone had to do it! And someone had to splice these too: -Bob
