Mt. Hood

For a change of pace, I drove to the east side of Mt. Hood near the Meadows Ski Resort.

Since it was going to get hot, I decided to hike up into the alpine meadows. And, to make it interesting, see a waterfall or two.

Above timberline on Mt. Hood, about three weeks too late for the alpine wildflower show

After parking, I soon reached 100-foot Sahalie Falls mostly hidden in a deep cut surrounded by dense forest.

In another several miles 60-foot Umbrella Falls appeared, a pretty spreading angled slide. It was a very pleasant area with nice campsites nearby.

From here it was only 1 1/2 miles to the Timberline Trail and lots of exploring of the alpine meadows above.

A very nice hike indeed!
