"Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?"  -Job 38:22

Monk Linda & Monk Preston take a break and give thanks to God on nearby Mt. Hood.

Mount Hood's snow-covered peak rises 11,249 feet (3,429 m) and is home to twelve glaciers.  

It is the highest mountain in Oregon and the fourth-highest in the entire Cascade Range that extends through Oregon and Washington

Mount Hood is considered the Oregon volcano most likely to massively erupt (as the nearby Mt. St. Helens did, not all that long ago)...
