Mt. Hood Oregon

Mt. Hood had little to do with the Corps of Discovery journey, but they did see it and include it in their diaries as a major landmark. 
Its snow covered, pointed top is visible for more than 50 miles on the Columbia River. As you approach, mile by mile, it keeps getting bigger and taller. Now that I am here on the top, it is as majestic as I expected.
