Snow Stroll in the Hood

A tiny island in the Sandy River

On Sunday, I returned to my old stomping grounds at the foot of Mt. Hood with bittersweet feelings.  First, I attended a celebration of life for a long time community volunteer and fine man.  I was able to visit many of my former fire department brethren.  Then it was time to go.  I had no plan, but wanted a walk in the woods knowing there would be snow nearby. Less than two miles up Lolo Pass road, snow was starting to pile up on the side of the road.  Hmm.  Could be interesting, I thought, especially without four wheel drive.   I pieced a pullout near the Sandy River and tromped through the woods.  There was no goal but to get in touch with nature.  It felt good.  Just what I needed.
