The first time we attempted to visit Trillium Lake, it was apparently too early, and the road was closed. The second time we attempted to visit Trillium Lake we were able to drive down to the southern spot that has the best vantage point to see Mt. Hood, only it was cloudy that day, and the mountain could not be seen. This was the third attempt. The skies were not as clear as usual due to some forest fires, but I think I’m satisfied enough with the way these came out to at least not have to make a fourth attempt.
