I love it. Gonna send a link to my non-climbing brother in Tigard. Thanks for catching this.
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
Wow,I've never seen something like this before.Fantastic!
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
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.
Nice photo and mood, I like it
It was almost unreal being there. Instant inspiration! Thanks! -Bob
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!
