The weather on Mt Hood can be unpredictable. On the west side facing Portland, it is usually colder and wetter. This weekend was much like that. However, we stayed on the east side, where it was warm and blue skies for the majority of the time. This photo is the exception. On Friday night right before dusk, a huge cloud bank rolled over the mountain and settled in the valley we were camping in. We expected rain. But it never happened. It just continued to blow by and by the time it was dark, things were much more clear. The next day was warm and the blue sky was back!
