Mt. Hood trip in February 2004
We have been coming up to Mt. Hood at least once a year since moving to Portland.  This was the first year
that we came up and tried out snow shoe hiking.   We have been staying at the Mt. Hood Inn in Government
Camp for several years now.  This hotel is a dog friendly place.

We have grown very fond of renting equipment at Mountain Tracks in Government
Camp.  They folks there are very helpful with trail ideas and maps (which I usually forget
to take with us.

There was a good deal of fresh snow for us to enjoy.  We were not to sure about where we were going or how we would like this snow shoe
hiking thought or not.  So the folks at Mountain Tracks told us about some trails just North of Government Camp within walking distance.  So
off we went with dog in tow or our dog Cleo had us in tow.
