Sunrise, Mt Hood Wilderness, Oregon. January 2013.

Last Friday I made it up to Mt Hood to catch the sunrise. I left Portland at about 4:30 AM to drive to the mountain and snowshoe up to this location. It was a beautiful morning and the duration of sunrise color was amazing. The horizon started glowing about 45 minutes prior to sunrise and just kept getting better until the sun came up. This is some of the most dramatic light I've experienced on the mountain.
