Bald Mountain Hike via Lolo Pass Trail // Mt. Hood // July 2016

Back in July Brian and I went on the Bald Mountain Hike from Lolo Pass Trail with EPIC views of Mt. Hood, as well as, Mt. St. Helens (a little more in the distance.) You  know how you feel when you sit in the front row at the movie theater? THAT’S what’ it felt like when we got to the final view point at Bald Mountain looking straight at Mt. Hood.  I have this sorta infatuation with Mt. Hood. No kidding every time I see it from ANY view point it takes my breathe away (even from our front yard). There’s just something about that ‘cano (as Brady calls it) that makes me melt. See what I did there?

It was one of those close to perfect days where moods were high, the weather was nearly perfect, the drive was beautiful, we spent most of the day hiking in (breathtakingly beautiful) nature surrounded by unbelievable views, and ended it with our favorite small town hamburger joint on the way home all while my mom was watching Brady. What a gift of a day.

I made a quick 2 min video from our hike:

Here are some of my favorite shots from our kid free hike.
