We didn't do many hikes this Summer, and decided we should close out the season with a bang. This 6 mile hike starts at Cloud Cap trail head on the east side of MT Hood, about 45 minutes south of Hood River. The trail works some 3+ miles straight up the mountain, through sub-alpine all the way to the base of the long glacier seen in the photo below. (the long one towards the left side of the mountain). I could tell the story, but I've got a million things to do so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
