There are so many woodland scenes around the Pacific Northwest. Mt. Hood is a great location just east of the Portland Metro area, and has a ton of hiking trails with spectacular scenery.
The Pacific Crest Trail, a pathway that makes its way all the way from Mexico up to western Canada, passes right through the area and is pull of historic stopping points such as Timberline Lodge. We found this spot by venturing a bit off trail at a nearby hike. It was secluded, quiet, and glowing with streaks of sunlight during the late afternoon. This area is very lush and green year round.

This was taken in late fall as the leaves began to transform into golden yellow, orange and red. Mt. Hood is one of the most photographed locations in the Northwest. If you are in the area, there are many great locations to check out including Trillium lake, White River, as well as the charming little ski town called Government Camp. I am fortunate to live in an area that features a variety of scenes within a few hours in all directions. Between beaches, mountains, wetlands, and valleys, there is no shortage of scenery for a landscape photographer and opens a ton of doors for other creative platforms.
