[/caption] Beautiful photo of the Mt. Hood Wilderness near the White River Snow-Park trail system. This photo was taken about 3/4 from the top of the White River Snow-Park trail. Mt. Hood was just behind me, when I took this photo but you can see just how beautiful and serene the area is. You can just barley see the small rabbit tracks in the lower left hand corner. There are dozens of small animal tracks all along this steep part of the park trail. There are hundreds of Christmas card photo opportunities throughout the entire area and you will especially want to bring a camera and lots of snacks and water due to the difficulty of the terrain and steepness. However, you won’t be disappointed with the amazing views and solitude. I always carry my tripod whenever I snow-shoe up here but I usually end up only using the tripod in designated spots since I end up taking hundreds of photos as I trudge up the steep terrain and only pick a few area to set up my tripod.
