Leaving my home in southeastern Washington on a June morning at 1:30am I headed south for a 3 hour drive to Lake Trillium in Oregon. Lake Trillium is near Government Camp, Oregon and has a great view of Mount Hood. Upon my arrival at Lake Trillium sunrise conditions did not look very good but I decided to see what would develop. Not much happened so after sunrise I headed towards Hood River, Oregon to Lost Lake campgrounds and resort. I arrived at Lost Lake around 7:30 am and was pleased to see the still lake and perfect conditions for a reflection of Mount Hood on the lake. Mount Hood stands at a height of 11,239 feet above sea level and is the highest peak in Oregon. I found a trail down to the lake to hike on and followed it until I got a good view of the lake and Mount Hood. I tried some many different compositions but this is the one I liked the best.
