Devil’s Kitchen

I have wanted to get up high on Mt. Hood and yesterday was the day.  We hiked outside the boundaries of Timberline and set up camp Saturday night.  Yesterday, we took off up the Climbers Trail and kept setting new goals until we found ourselves at 10,150′ at Devil’s Kitchen.

Here is a star trail Kevin took.

The Milky Way was over Hood and amazing.

The chair lifts on the left are Palmer and we have been to the top of them several times.

    That was some seriously steep climbing! The star trail pictures always amaze me and lucky you two got to see such a perfect Milky Way. Way to go your two!

    Beautiful pics again. Still trying to figure out how camping in the snow is enjoyable though!!
