Mt. Hood is a work-in-progress for me. During many of my visits, the mountain has been entirely concealed by clouds. Other times the mountain is visible, but the lake is choppy from wind. Other times the lake is calm, the mountain is visible but there are no clouds and the scene lacks visual excitement. One day, the clouds will be right, the mountain will have a thick blanket of snow and the lake will be smooth. I hope it happens in my lifetime!
