Reflection of Mt. Hood on Trillium Lake

Reflection of Mt Hood on Trillium Lake

That’s Mt. Hood, at 3,429m (11,249ft), the highest mountain in the state of Oregon. The reflection is on Trillium Lake, a man-made body of water about 12km south-southwest of the mountain.

I remembered this image today, taken near the Trillium Lake Campground in Mt. Hood National Forest, because I was planning to return this year but that never happened. And because I also planned to process some of the photos made during that camping trip. With the exception of this shot, that didn’t happen either. Definitely next year.

This snap is from a quick post made onsite featuring shots taken near that area back in 2013. Do check them out.

For the record, today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 712th straight, was taken on 11 August 2013 at Mt. Hood National Forest in Oregon, USA. To get your bearings, a map is below.
