3 pix from my very slow drive thru Mt. Hood National Forest in Oregon. In 10 miles I went thru sun, rain, snow and sleet.
Oh, and the wind was gusting around 60 miles an hour.
Typical day for a trucker…
Bad to worse…
At the break neck speed of 17 mph!
Beautiful though this world.
Don’t ‘cha think?

The one time I visited Portland it was in July. It was 90 and sunny in the city. About an hour later, I stood outside a lodge up Mount Hood in the snow, drinking a delicious Henry Weinhard beer. I loved Mount Hood on that day, but that trip down in a tour bus on dry ground had me holding my breath, so I get your point.
I wanted a beer and a Xanax when I got to Portland….
Did the existence of those runaway truck cut-outs in the mountain make you feel safer or more nervous?
That’s when you know they’re serious about the grades. Gets my attention, that’s fer sure. I thought they looked like ski jumps today, then thought they would make excellent tubing Hills!
Gorgeous world!! Drive safe!
I don’t envy the driving conditions but it is beautiful. :)x
Oh, but that is absolutely gorgeous!!! I wouldn’t want to drive in it, but that is breathtakingly beautiful!
A little nerve wracking on my end, but had to get the shot!
I was just thinking…. you were driving and taking pictures at the same time!!! LOL Those were gorgeous though! I love the mountains and snow… well, cold wet snow for a while as long as I have the proper attire on… otherwise, I like it from inside!
Head mounted action cam with remote trigger. I’m high tech baby!
OH! There ya go! I was worried there for a few minutes! Well, you were only going 17 mph, but, sliding downhill would increase the mph!
That’s the fun part! Except for the screaming…..
OMGosh, that just about made me choke! LOL
Oh my goodness those snow covered trees are GORGEOUS (imagines having a yard full of em and throwing Christmas lights all over them for 9 months of the year)
and and.. keep safe driving in those conditions! It looks like 17mph is a fairly reasonable speed – I’d probably pull over till the snow cleared up. (one would hope it doesn’t snow all year round eh, or I would never get anything delivered being a trucker)
Hence… Go Slow in Snow. Plus, you can see more scenery
