To ring in the New Year, we headed to Bennett Pass for a snowshoe hike with views. Just across from the parking lot was Mount Hood with blue skies! A heavy layer of fog covered the surrounding lowlands, including the Hood River Valley. We went to the Terrible Traverse, which was not so terrible after all, and then turned around to head back. Along the way, we had good views of Mount Jefferson in the distance, with Mount Hood shining right in front of us. This was my first time snowshoeing here, and I really enjoyed the views.
