This picture is taken from the edge of Highway 26 near the gate that is presently CLOSED to drive into Trillium Lake. Behind me is a huge snow bank that is keeping the road from being opened. You can see that Mt Hood is still totally white from the snow. Nothing has started to melt as it usually has.
Typically, all the lakes on Mt Hood are open for the Memorial Day weekend. However this year, Trillium, Clear, Clackamas, Frog, Little Crater, and Harriet are all still snowed in. Some people even drove up without checking the snow levels and were very disappointed when they arrived to find out that their campgrounds were not open yet.
