Mount Hood National Forest, Oregon

Mount Hood National Forest, Ore., Oct. 19, 2012: Located twenty miles east of Portland, Mount Hood National Forest extends south from the Columbia River Gorge across over 60 miles of forested mountains, lakes and streams. The Forest spans 1,067,043 acres. The climate in Oregon is extremely moist and because of this, its landscape is very lush and green. It was raining while we walked through on our way to Bagby Hot Springs, but the huge trees allowed for only a light sprinkling of water to fall through. There’s something about the way a forest looks when it’s wet that makes it so much nicer to photograph. This forest was full of color and texture.
