You can catch a glimpse of Mount Hood looming on the horizon from the city of Portland, Oregon. Look through the Douglas firs and find it.
If you're in Portland, seek higher ground—preferably a rooftop or balcony—crack open a Mirror Pond, Rogue, or other Oregon craft brew, and enjoy the view.
The dormant, snow-covered volcano lies just outside the city and is home to Timberline Lodge, a beautiful attraction built by craftsman and artists as a Works Progress Administration project during the Great Depression. The exterior of the building is featured in "The Shining."
