Winter at Zigzag River
I photographed Zigzag River when we were camping up here last summer, and was thinking it might be a pretty photo in the fresh Christmas snow. So we drove up to Mt. Hood early yesterday morning for a winter photo hike. We never made it to the trailhead though because the access road hadn't been plowed and we didn't have our tire chains. This spot along the river is part of another trail we hadn't tried yet, and just as pretty. It's hard to go wrong in this area near Mt. Hood. So many nice trails to choose from, all created by the CCC back in the 1930s. I'm coming back up here soon for some more photography. Tire chains are in the car now just in case, but I'm hoping to learn the plowing schedule better so I can hit the sweet spot between fresh snow and newly plowed roads!
