I hate that these photos are cluttering my desktop. GO! BE FREE! POLLUTE THE INTERNET!
After visiting Portland, the entire studio went up to the Timberline Lodge to stay the night. Apparently the exterior shots of the film The Shining were captured here. Needless to say, this lodge attached to the side of Mt. Hood is extremely charming with its massive timber beams, stone walls, and nature-themed decorative elements.
At every possible moment, beautifully intricate ornamental details are added (sometimes in the form of smiley faces…)
While the interiors are charming and lovely, with an exterior to match…
…the real treasure is the mountain setting.
It makes a Colorado man yearn for home.
While watching the sunrise, I was astonished at the rainbow of colors the sky became in the span of a single hour.
Isn’t it charming? The way the fog settles between the peaks? In person, it is almost like a watercolor painting.
It is good to know that such natural beauty is only a few hours away.
Now, whenever I am homesick, I’ll just head north and turn up the John Denver tunes.
Lets keep up the tempo and get this desktop clean! More trip photos soon.
