We were able to stand in the recent snow at Timberline Lodge - the mountain is impressive. Great to get closer to it at this lodge - definitely take the trip here.

If you have been waiting for an engraved invitation to get out and see this jewel in your own back yard, consider this your gilt-edged parchment with hand-written calligraphy hand delivered by a uniformed footman to you in person. GO already! We made our first circumnavigation of Mount Hood this weekend while in the area for the Harvest Festival in Hood River. We had spent the day before connecting the dots on the Fruit Loop map of orchards, wineries and farms selling apples, pears, wines, grapes, wools and tasty pastries and the better half says let's drive around that Mountain, so we did. The weather was spectacular, a warm 70-degrees with sunshine and a sweet alpine breeze as we passed orchards filled with ripe fruit and families doing the u-pick polka under the bluest skies. There were no bad views and we took plenty of photos as we drove past small towns, handsome homes, contented cows and changing leaves. We drove up to Timberline to see one of the great lodges and found a busy mix of snow-boarders, photographers and day trippers. We lunched at Government Camp, which was gearing up for the winter sports crowds then made our way through Sandy and Gresham before catching I-84 East back to where we started. It is a perfect drive that should not be missed, especially while the Autumn is at it's sweetest and the leaves are their most colorful!

The Timberline Lodge had about two rooms open so we were very lucky to get a room. Before we made the drive to the top; it was in the 70s at the highway. It was close to freezing at the top. Mount Hood was pretty fine. The old Timberline Lodge is a classic lodge. Many people stay there when they want to climb the mountain. We saw several mountain climbers there in the summer. I believe Mount Hood stays open later than any other ski facility in the U.S. and allows snowboarding in the summer. We liked the view and the lodging. I`d recommend it to anybody in the area.

We traveled in the early weeks in October, not quite the snow season. (In fact no lifts were open at the time) We wanted to see the Timberline Lodge. It was still beautiful and had paths that we could walk along to get lungs full of nice fresh air and were able to throw a snow ball or two!

So beautiful and looks so different without snow. Went to the lodge and took a couple hikes from there. It is 6M feet, so if you have any lung issues you might want to just look :)
