Living in the great Northwest allows the viewing of many mountains during one's travels. I love the Portland area except for the fact that Mt Hood is just such a poor excuse for a real mountain. It is a nice mountain as mountains go, the fact is that it's just there.
Then we have day's like today where one truly sees Mt Hood as she is and one must admit what a fine mountain she is.
