I flew into Portland, OR, about 8:30 in the evening on June 29th. It was clear with a few clouds around the mountains. I was sitting on the left side of the plane by the window and saw the Three Sisters, then Mt. Jefferson and finally Mt. Hood. They were beautiful! As we neared Mt. Hood I realized I could take a picture of it. Most pictures we see of Mt. Hood are from Portland, thus from the west looking east. This picture is from the north looking south. We flew down the Columbia River which is the normal flight path for the planes coming from the east. This was after flying for about 19 hours not counting airport waiting times. It had been a long day!
After I took the picture of Mt. Hood I realize I could get Mt. Jefferson and perhaps the Sisters so I angled the camera to the left and took another shot. You can see them if you look carefully. Mt. Jefferson is closer and then the tips of the Sisters are in the background.
Oregon so often is cloud covered and rained in that these shots are rare.
