Hike to Pittock Mansion

Jacques being silly...
Sunday afternoon we hiked from Mcleay park up to Pittock Mansion

The back side of the mansion with Jacques walking up the steps... The beautiful view from the top with Mount Hood in the distance. It looks like a floating backdrop but it's real, I promise :)
