> Mt. Hood On July 4, 2006


This morning we took advantage of the 4th of July holiday and drove up to Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood where we walked around in the snow and had lunch. The lodge was built in 1936 and was a WPA project. President Roosevelt himself was at the dedication in 1937. Global warming has helped melt a lot of the historic glaciers on the mountain but for now it remains the only place in the US with year round skiing.
