Goin' Round 'the Mountain'

In Portland, Mt Hood is referred to as "the Mountain", as in "this weekend we are going to the mountain".  Well, today we we went round "the mountain".  We drove out 84 to Hood River and then took 35 to 26 and back home....that means we went around Mt. Hood.  It was a beautiful day to be out.

We drove up the Hood River Valley with all its many fruit orchards.

We stopped and hiked a bit on the Lower Salmon River Trail.  Trailmom aka Linda's Lens  wrote  a very descriptive trip report with great photos on Portland Hikers.  Her hike was a little later in the year but it was lovely today, too.
