A fairly bad cold has laid me low these past few days--the first in nearly three years. My fever broke yesterday and today all indications suggest the worst has passed. I was relaxing in my chair late this afternoon and decided to take in the view. We enjoyed a rain-free day and with a crystal clear sky, there existed the potential for a great sunset. As I swiveled the chair a hundred-eighty degrees, there was my favorite mountain, covered in the most beautiful fresh snow.
For about ten minutes I took in this stunning sight, one that will soon be sorely missed. But then, as I've done so many times before, I ran to fetch the camera. I apologize for sounding like a broken record, but truly, if you're ever lucky enough to see something like this from your living room windows, I doubt few of you would behave differently. It's just so beautiful, it demands to be shared.
I took the usual variety of shots, some zoomed a little and some a lot. The sun was setting so quickly, before I knew it, the show was over. I love looking at Mount Hood so much, I'll probably be snapping photos of it from the plane the day we depart Oregon for Hawaii. I do hope you all had a good day, too.
