Oregon 35

P1010882

we headed south on Oregon Route 35 after leaving the Bonneville Dam area for Crater Lake NP. This is Mount Hood, looking west. A 11240 foot stratovolcano. The drive is quite beautiful, passing many wineries and fruit stands, climbing most of the way.

We are near the southeast flank of the mountain with the White River debris/bank in the foreground.

P1010884

Looking downstream from the debris bank, you can see a re-constructed bridge and highway. This area of the road has seen 20 wash-outs in its lifetime. The last in 2006 after a heavy rainfall on an extensive snowpack. The White River Glacier upstream on Mt. Hood has shrunk 61% in area from 1907 to 2004.

Some poor human took our pic for us.
