A thick rope of clouds collars Mt. Hood like a giant feather boa, adding to the flare of the dramatic that overtakes you as you navigate the curves of the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway while her majesty pops in and out of view. While en route to Tamanawas Falls on the northeast side of the mountain, I couldn't resist her lure and abruptly pulled over to photograph her like I was some paparazzo, trying to capture the glamorous starlet of some bygone era before she slips off the red carpet and disappears into the adoring masses.
