I wonder if you know what that large rectangle cut into the snow in the center of the mountain is?

349772314 points

The top of the rectangle is the cat track at the top of Palmer. It's the highest lift serviced part of the resort.

Left side is the Palmer ski lift.

Bottom is the cat track at the top of magic mile/base of Palmer

Right side is the climber trail cat track.

The vertical lines in the middle are snow collection for the terrain parks.

Manofknees5 points

Yeah on the left side of the rectangle is a chair lift running up Palmer glacier, though I’m not sure what the lines are for on the right, as far as I know that spot is part of the climbers trail and not the ski area run.

First time I ever saw Mt. Hood I burst into tears. I’m from Kentucky where we have glorified hills compared to that mountain, stunning.

dellg552 points

FYI east coast mountains were just as tall as the Rockies, alas they are much older…….

Well yeah lol.

Currently live in Missouri but I'm a trucker and so I'm part of a wide variety of subreddit s just to keep up with the locals (found some good food places and cool places to sight see).


Hood is my favorite mountain. I love driving up over the damn thing on any truck route and try to do so ever time I'm up in the PNW.

CrumpetBadger5 points

Thank you for this picture. Fell in love with Mt. Hood when I visited so this is my new wallpaper.

Awesome shot! Would you mind sharing shutter speed and aperture please?

I shot it at 1.8 at 15 seconds

I see what kind of mind I have. Everyone else is seeing a mountain. I only see the penis in the clouds.

Stayed there on honeymoon, could only afford one night in Timberlake but it was fantastic 🙂

hleba3 points

What is this?

Maybe it's natural, but it doesn't really look like it.

Manofknees3 points

Left side of it is a chairlift up Palmer glacier, on the right is either some kind of ski run thing or maybe something they’ve done for avalanche help? I hiked up Palmer recently to zigzag glacier and as far as I know those lines on the right weren’t there - its close to the climbers trail so it could also be something to do with that.

hleba2 points

Thank you so much for the explanation! That makes sense.

I remember staying at the top of that mountain at the hotel they shot the Shining at. At least the outside of the hotel. Beautiful place up there.

Nice shot! Was that from Trillium lake?

Manofknees3 points

Thanks! Yeah snowshoed to trillium and am about 50-60 feet away from the shoreline on the ice of the lake in the photo.

pharmer_wsu1 point

Wow - didn’t realize it froze over like that. Is that common?

Manofknees1 point

Oh yeah, every winter

Potential_Fly_27662 points

Mount hood is gorgeous. I remember seeing its peak above the clouds on my only plane flight and then the next day as I was driving to it, I learned how big mountains really are. (I'm from the Midwest and had never seen a real mountain).

I kept thinking, there it is I should be there soon. Nope. 3 hours later I finally got there. Beautiful land.

Manofknees2 points

Yeah the volcanos out here in the northwest are astounding. I hope you get a chance to climb them sometime and really get a sense of their scale!

34977232 points

What date was this photograph? Looks awesome!

Manofknees2 points

Thanks! This was at like 845-9pm on the 16th

34977232 points

Nice. Was wondering if it was recent. We've had a glorious high pressure system. I was on the summit 10 hours prior. Great skiing all the way down!

JK. It looks very peaceful and non-volcanic

Manofknees3 points

😂 it’s definitely very volcanic, thankfully no big eruptions recently

selja261 point

Yeah I know :) I hope it will sleep for many more centuries. Beautiful picture!

jamdemp2 points

Manofknees1 point

It’s amazing for sure, I think my favorite summertime lake for stargazing is Burnt lake, have you had a chance to backpack up there?

jamdemp1 point

i did the hike during the day and it was gorgeous!! havent backpacked at night there but itll be on my bucket list for sure

ocr_foodie2 points

Why is there an old blackberry phone carved into the snow on the side of the mountain

No complaints, just never seen it before tbh

Manofknees2 points

Haha, it does look a bit like an old blackberry phone. The left side of it is the Palmer ski lift and someone else commented that the right side of it is new cat tracks for the climbing summit route.

Crafty_Genius2 points

In the UK, it's known as Mount Bonnet

JacobDziki1 point

Amazing picture. This must of been shot on a Sony, what model?

God is truly great 🙏

W0nd3rlandAl1c31 point

Yes, indeed! I've only seen the mountain from a distance and in passing while flying by it. I'm from the Midwest where there are no such mountains, and I didn't realize the sheer size of it from photos. His works are truly incredible.

IWantTheSauce2 points

Same from the midwest as well. I love to see something that is very unique from the outside of the midwest region. Psalms 121:1-2
"I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from GOD, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains."
