The Drought at Clear Lake

This is the dramatic look of Clear Lake up on Mt Hood right now. I went up 2 weekends ago and was pretty shocked by the lack of water. The muddy areas pictured are usually covered in water, and even the stumps that appear have been covered in water in the past. Now it is all baking in the sun.

  1. Very sad to see......I'm so done with this hot, dry summer we've been having!

  2. A lot of the west needs a long fall and winter of steady precipitation.

  3. we're experiencing drought here too.
    praying for rain soon!

  4. Hope you get some rain soon!

  5. Oh this is so sad. Hope it rains soon. We are hearing about a number of forest fires in the West Coast...hope you are safe.

  6. Wow! I hope it rains soon to top it up. Where I live it rains the most from January and March. What time of year does it rain there?


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
