I've heard that if you go to Tokyo and see Mt. Fuji when you're there, it's a lucky day. It's the same with Portland and Mt. Hood, I think. Hood is usually hidden from us by grey, cloudy skies. Today, however, was a gorgeous spring day and the view of Mt. Hood was spectacular! I drove into the hills above John's Landing to find a place to show as much of the mountain as possible and found a place that included sight of the Willamette River. Do click to make the photo larger; the mountain's majesty shows off well that way. Truly, a lucky day!
