Winter Hood

On a clear day, Mt Hood practically glows. Right now, it doesnt appear that there is any bare rock showing through the thick snow base. In the Sandy River valley below, you can see the remains of the heavy snow they had over a few days last week. Off to the north side, the smoke from someones fireplace - much needed, since when I was out taking this photo, my hands were FREEZING!

Thanks for braving the cold to share this glimpse of Mount Hood with us!

WHICH SKY FOR YOU?

Which sky for you?
One that is blue?
Or do you prefer
A sky that’s demure?

A sky in grey
Is soft, they say,
And not everyone
Likes the blinding sun.

Perhaps a sky
Through which geese fly
To winter havens
Away from ravens?

A rain-swept sky
That seems to cry?
O quickly choose one
Before day is done!
