One of the things I like about flying into and out of Portland OR (which I did a couple of weeks ago), is the spectacular views of Mt. Hood you get on a nice day (it was a very nice day).
Hikers and climbers get trapped and die on Mt. Hood every year. It’s a dangerous place. (Though not dangerous enough to keep folks from the ski slopes visible at this angle.) But from this altitude, I feel like I could almost reach out and brush the snow off.
