Majestic Mount Hood
It's photos such as these that make it easy to understand why ancient people held the tops of mountains to be sacred. (If you ever visit the National Observatory at Kitt Peak outside of Tucson, Arizona, they have an orientation film that mentions this concept. Or, at least, they used to!)
Desiree writes that it's hard to get good photos of Mt. Hood as it's usually shrouded in a heavy cloud cover. However, the weather has been unusually dry and clear this month, making this great photo possible. (Since then they've received a wee bit o' snow, I believe!)
She calls this her "why I moved to Oregon" shot.
Even though I enjoy living in Southern California, I totally understand.
