Why we love Portland - 17
The predictable views of Mt. Hood is one of the reasons people move to Portland. Its just awesome. This was the best view I'd ever seen... from a hike to Mc Neil point. We actually turned back on this hike since the snow pack was still about 3 feet high on the trail (in July). But as we were coming back we met a hiking group led by a guide from Maryland (go figure!) who invited us to join them. At the end of the day we were so glad we did!
