Once more, Mount Hood, the sight of you has taken my breath away. Though miles away from me you loom in front of me like a blockade. Clouds hover above your snow capped peak. I gasp. You are intimidating, yet so beautiful.
I remember when I visited you and stood at your base, smelled your mountain air, and trembled at your majesty.
None other I have seen strike me with awe like you do giant rock.
Bald Peak State Park–Scenic Viewpoint. In clear weather the park offers views of Mount Hood, Mount St. Helens, Mount Jefferson, Mount Adams, and Mount Rainier.
(I actually saw the view of the five mountains one clear day when I was at Bald Peak Park. At the time I did not have a good camera with which to photograph the scene, therefore I had to create the picture that you see here, but the original view was similar though not quite as clear. However, it was so amazing as I did actually see all five mountains! I wish I would have had a camera that could have captured that experience. Maybe someday…..:)
