Experience the diverse moods of Oregon’s magnificent Mt. Hood! From starry night timelapse to gorgeous macro wildflower cinematography - ‘Mt. Hood in Spring’ showcases this gem of the Cascades on all scales.
Postcard of the snow-shrouded Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood, Oregon, made famous as a horror icon by its appearance in Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining, where it stood in for the fictional Overlook Hotel in the Colorado Rockies.
Pictured on the postcard along with the hotel are Desmond O’Bear, an Irish ginger bear from the peat bogs of Northern Ireland, and his trainer/manager, Ens. Michael Chapman, who was never a sailor, despite his maritime rank and jaunty cap.
Starting in the 1940s, for nearly 20 years O’Bear and Chapman headlined at the Timberline’s Honey Room, with far fewer incidents of guest maulings than Rodney Dangerfield’s six month residency in the 1980s.
Though the history of the Timberline Lodge is decidedly less horrific than its fictional cousin, it is nonetheless colorful, such as the time actor Kevin James threw up in an elevator.
So pretty! We hiked partly up the falls, not all the way because there is actually an air quality alert right now. There are a bunch of forest fires right now in Canada and the haze is really bad here. The visibility is terrible, but the higher you get the clearer it is, which is why Mt. Hood looked so clear yesterday.
The picture at the top is a German pancake, and omfg it was so good. It reminded me of a Polish pancake, really thin and chewy. 😍
We stopped at a farm too and got some cider, cheese, and jam. There were tons of flowers all around it was seriously magical!
