Pacific Northwest hikers wait with great anticipation for a warm summer day to visit a beautiful alpine area.
One of my favorite destinations is the McNeil Point area on Mt. Hood via Bald Mountain. Wildflowers of almost every color decorate the open meadows drawing dancing butterflies to their petals.
But there is also something magical about visiting the alpine areas in the autumn before heavy snow covers the meadows.
On an early November day I marveled at the stormy views of Mt. Hood’s summit over the ice-covered tarns below McNeil Point.
Another grand day in the Pacific Northwest!
