Here, my camera and I spotted Mt. Hood from a small beach near the I-5 bridge in Vancouver. This is the beginning of my trek along the Columbia recently. The beach was flooded last Spring and completely invisible and not accessible to take a photo like this IF I had wanted to then. . .
This is a closeup of the above photo. The condos are in WA and Mt. Hood in Oregon but it looks like the mighty mountain is right behind the condos and that I am standing in the Columbia River to take this photo, Instead, I am on the little beach above and zoomed in. The Columbia curves in many places.
This photo of Mt. Hood and the I-205 bridge was taken from Wintler Park where my hike ended. Both, Washington and Oregon share ownership of the Columbia River. When you cross the bridges, there is a sign about in the middle that says either Welcome to Washington OR Welcome to Oregon -- depends on which direction you are traveling as to what you read.
TONIGHT, we are supposed to get our first snowfall. I hope the weatherman is right this time! I am tired of just looking at Mt. Hood to get my snow experience this winter! IF we do, you can be sure that I will be out there with my camera taking pictures of it.
