Snowshoeing at Trillium Lake

We took advantage of a gorgeous sunny Friday to head up to Mount Hood for a snowshoe trek around Trillium Lake.   The 5 mile loop includes stunning views of Mount Hood, cute little cabins, snowy meadows, and loop around the frozen lake.   Inga had a fabulous time romping around and chomping snow at every chance. With the temperature around 40 degrees, it was downright balmy!   After last year's snow drought, it was lovely to see so much snow on Mount Hood.

Finally stopped at Joe's Donuts; perfect snowshoe fuel-up!
