My Excellent Oregon Adventure -- Mount Adams

mt adams

My Excellent Oregon Adventure -- Mount Adams.  A few miles north of Oregon is Trout Lake Washington.  That is where we stopped at a ranger station and got this stamp.  The National Parks service has a wonderful program where you can buy a National Parks Passport book (about $7 last time I looked) and stamp it with the date and sometimes wonderful pictures, like this one.  The date stamp is similar to a postage cancellation and allows you to use it as a keepsake so you know when you visited certain locations.

 Wow, I just love this view of the mountain.  I took a picture with my cell phone as well and it turned out great too.  You have to drive along a dirt road to this lake location to get this picture -- but I think it was worth it.

This is a slightly different view.  I can't decide which I like better.
