The day after Christmas Jason and I went with my parents up to Mt. Hood for the first time.
Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood is an historical landmark so we had to check it out. It was absolutely breath-taking (in every sense of the term).
Here's a view from one of the lower lifts.
When they say Timberline, they aren't kidding. We were so close to the summit of Mt. Hood that the actual tree line (timberline) stopped.
You can't really tell from this picture, but there are ski lifts (and people skiing) all the way to the top.
