Spirit Of Repose

Mount Hood, Oregon

At 11,240 feet, Mount Hood is the fourth highest peak in the Cascades. This view is from Trillium Lake, about seven and a half miles away. We arrived well before sunrise, and watched the mists swirling off the lake, sometimes obscuring the mountain. A few minutes before I took this photo, some ducks landed in the foreground, obscuring the reflection. Shortly after, the clouds moved in to hide the summit. Timing and patience are everything.
