Mt. Hood above Temperature Inversion

Mt. Hood above Temperature Inversion

This amazing view of Mt. Hood was enjoyed from a logged ridge near the road leading to the Indian Springs access to the PCT, south of Wahtum Lake, Thanksgiving Day 2002.

Re: Surreal

Surreal indeed - that's a pretty good word for it. Spectacular day, and I was most happy to be able to catch it! Thanks Eric! -Bob

Re: Incredible

Thanks! I had never seen that phenomenon either. I've seen similar views, but not this effect. It seemed to be caused by being at the exactly correct elevation - the point of the inversion. It was definitely colder below that elevation, and warmer above. I was very lucky to see and capture this view. -Bob

Re: Question

I can't find the info you want. I don't think anyone knows for sure.The only thing I did find was that the last eruptive period for Hood ended shortly before the arrival of Lewis & Clark in 1805. Click here and scroll down to Mount Hood.

Re: Totally AWESOME

Yeah, Hood is one of those mountains that must be climbed. I'd do it with you except that I've sworn off that mountain after 8 climbs: So Many Mountains, So Little Time! Thanks Bo!
