Still in the Mount Hood Wilderness. Today I had lots of elevation gain and reached Timberline lodge. It’s a ski resort and quite remarkable. Built and maintained by the state of Oregon, it’s got lots of history and beauty. Inside there is a museum showing the history. Lodging is much too expensive to get a room, so I set up my tent in some trees nearby. The restaurant is first class, but I ate at the bar. I picked up my resupply here and purchased some additional items at one of the tiny gift shops that had a little food.
There were many thru-hikers here and I was kept busy socializing most of the day.
One of my few deer sightings. Usually they run off before I can snap a shot. This one was curious.
