Hiking on Mount Hood

Yesterday Barb and I went on a hike on Mount Hood. Some of the details are on my Twitter feed herehere, here, here, here, here, here, and here. A few of the pictures:

Impressive mountain but not as pretty as Mount Rainer where we spent our anniversary a few years ago.

Yes, I was open carrying the entire way. No one said anything but Barb said some people were looking.

We got as high as 7000 feet. I could have gone further but Barb had some tight muscles and was tired.

Some people were carrying skis and snow boards. We didn’t actually see anyone come down the mountain on them though.

 Mount Jefferson in the background is almost 50 miles away.
Even without Barb in the picture it was a nice view.

 Lots of interesting plant life at the higher altitudes.
It appeared there had been larger trees here at one time.

  1. When seeing that pic of Barb and Mt. Jefferson, the first word that popped into my head was “Majestic”.

    After meeting Barb this past April, I’d say “Majestic” doesn’t apply to her as much as other adjectives, such as “lovely”, “wonderful”, “friendly”, and “gracious”.

    But “Majestic” certainly applies to that picture of her. Really great pic… are you sure you didn’t forget to mention Xenia coming along for the hike? 🙂

  2. Aaron, you need to watch what you say. I’m afraid she will start insisting I address her as “Your Majesty”.
