Last week Mike and I spent a beautiful afternoon on Mount Hood at the Timberline Ski Resort.
I am a "fairweather" skier - in order for me to really enjoy it all the elements have to come together. This was one of those trips: the weather was warm and sunny - not a cloud in the sky.
The slopes were wide open and the runs were long. The line waits were non-existent. And the views were incredible.

So much room to myself!
At the end of the day we packed up our gear and grabbed a beer in the historic Timberline Lodge - always worth a trip, even if skiing is not part of the plan.
