A Winter Storm Advisory was posted for the Cascades this morning with snow, wind and cold making up the prediction. Seemed like a really good time to head for the mountains. Following a tip/advice from my friend Tim I headed to Oakridge and then up Highway 58 and Salt Creek. Above 2,500 feet the fresh snow painted the trees but the driving was easy – bit icy but nothing too drastic. I went over Willamette Pass toward the town of Crescent and on the way dropped down thru the snow to gather this image.
The sun was breaking thru the eastern sky and brightening Diamond Peak. You can tell that the view did not last long – that dark cloud settled in after about 30 minutes – worked for me as I was really cold from the 21 degree weather and stiff breeze coming over the lake. It was a winter wonderland.
Comments are more than welcome.
