Mt. Hood Timberline Trail - Day 2

I've finally found a few moments on this beautiful Saturday morning to post some more Timberline Trail pics... Day 2! If I remember correctly we did a LOT of hiking this day (set up camp in the dark) so I did more shooting with the snapshot camera than my pro camera.
Anyway onto the photos!

Beautiful Indian Paintbrush wildflowers with Mt. Hood in the background-

A gorgeous spring fed stream in the morning hours, Mt. Hood in the background of course-

A different angle view of Hood that I had never seen, doesn't even look like the same mountain!

This was a gorgeous viewpoint after a very steep climb up from the canyon-

Colin and Kristin-

Last light on Mt. Hood, there was two deer in the field in front of me... such a beautiful sight!

Another gorgeous sunset-


Long exposure of the stars-

OK.... Lindsey and I are both so confused about what this is... because we saw the thing moving quite rapidly before I took this photo. It could have been our eyes playing tricks on us... but still. It's sooo bright and I've never seen a star or planet that bright. It's not a plane either. UFO???

Here are the snapshots from the day.
Waking up in the morning, Lindsey and I shared a tent-

Linz waking up... morning face-

We randomly ran into a good friend of ours Holly, I had no idea she was out there hiking too!

She hid behind a rock and jumped out to scare Colin and Lindsey-

Colin snapping some pics-

Lunch break-

Lindsey.... ummm... not sure what she's doing here?

One of my favorite things was wild berries everywhere!!! They are sooo good! These are huckleberries (they look like blueberries in the photo)-

Huckleberries, so good and healthy!

Wild raspberry-


Thimbleberry, one of the best tasting berries I've ever had!

Kristin, Colin and Lindsey-

This is what it looks like when you take a photo inside fire (not recommended)-

Lindsey cookin up some curry for dinner!

Lindsey gets cold very easily, so this is what she looks like every night in bed-

Thats it for day 2.... day 3 has the best photos from the trip so stay tuned!

Amazing photos as always Blaine. Mt. Hood looks beautiful. I wish I had seen the mountain in the summer when I lived in PDX. Hope you're well.

Could the bright light in the sky be the space station?
