We're on the way to Mt. Hood and Timberline Lodge.
Our driver/guide Jared stops and we savor our first close look at the mountain ...
... It looks a bit ominous emerging from the clouds.
See the ski lift rising only part way to the peak, a mile above us.
Our room at Timberline Lodge is splendid.

What does this carving say?
45 miles away, in front of the Lodge: Mt. Jefferson
83 miles away: The "Three Sisters" barely emerge from the evening haze.
We enjoy a fire before bed
