Went to visit Mt. Hood at the Timberline Lodge and Trillium Lake and the weather cooperated!! I'd been in Portland for over a week and hadn't seen it yet.(On a clear day it can be seen from the city)

Hiked the PCT a little bit to the south- there was a rotten snow bridge over a creek that made things a little more interesting. Got views of Mt. Jefferson, Oregon's second highest peak. Mount Hood is gorgeous and I'd really like to do the Timberline Loop Trail that circumnavigates it someday. Unfortunately my new camera took a fatal tumble- thank goodness for warranties!!

After Mt. Hood, the Memorial Day traffic was insane so I decided to visit Trillium Lake and see about the campsites there. While on my walk around the lake I found that there was at-large camping on the opposite side from the campground and found a great little free spot to spend the night. Late at night I went to the lake to get some water and the view of the stars reflected in the lake with Mount Hood was spectacular!! I was so disappointed to not have my good camera for the shot, but it is something I'll never forget.

In the morning I caught a flock of ducklings cavorting by the shore. Great way to end my trip to Portland!
