1/24/2019 White River Snowshoe, Mt Hood, OR
We started in mist with promise of sun breaking through. As we walked up the snow covered braid plain of the White River, the glowing peak of Mt Hood showed in silhouette, then in clarity against clear blue sky.
Looking back to the start point, fog lifting.
Clear blue skies over Mt Hood.
We hiked up onto the ridge and continued toward the mountain.
Approaching Boy Scout Ridge, near our lunch stop.
Lunch stop view point. A large group was already there, and the mountain peak was glowing ethereally as the sun came in through the clouds.
Return down the White River, high clouds forming.
(Hike # 5, 3.3 miles, 750 feet)
