The Mount Hood region of Oregon is one that could have easily gone the way of a National Park but sits rather as an example of a scenic area with a more recreational slant to it. This can be viewed as good or bad depending on who you ask. While it is more developed than perhaps it would be if given National Park status, it retains a bit of a national anonymity with it being mostly a playground for Oregonians. Locals surely enjoy its many use configuration with it being popular year round. Who can blame them, with it being a 90 minute drive from the state's biggest city. Missed by many tourists intent on rushing up the state's admittedly gorgeous coast, this splendid alpine region is well worth the effort to take at least a peek at. You will not only see some splendid nature but also see first hand the people of Oregon robustly enjoying their home state.
This is an area of changeable weather so even if traveling in summer, be prepared for cooler temperatures especially... more travel advice
In the morning, we decided to walk over to the lake. It was not quite as early as I normally would go out for a shoot... more travel advice
