Thursday, August 25, Part 6, Timberline Lodge and Mt. Hood, as we visited them

We parked in the nearby large parking lot, down the slope from the hotel entrance. The lot in front of it had a sign which led me to believe we shouldn't park there, something about guests--I can't remember the exact wording.

Milton and Kay took the path to the hotel, while I walked along on the pavement.

Onward and upward. What a couple!

The reason there's an historic mountain retreat and ski lodge at 6,000 feet. The reason I drove a vehicle by myself up here, for the first time ever, all curved and upward. And can you believe that blue sky? Hooray for blue sky and sunshine!

Part of the front of Timberline Lodge. I couldn't get a good photo of the entire front view, too many cars.

The main entrance.

Seen from the viewpoint above the main entrance. I don't know which direction I'm looking, nor do I know which mountain this one is. My best guess is Mt. Jefferson. Anyone? Anyone?

Come back tomorrow for more from on high.

It is Mt Jefferson, you are looking South down the spine of the Cascades.
