There's something a little forlorn about ski areas in warm weather. It's like looking at a road that's closed to traffic... due to circumstances beyond their control, they are unable to serve their purpose. On the plus side, there was a really nice view of Hood, and a somewhat different perspective of Crater Rock. If you're going over this pass, but don't have time to drive up to Timberline, you should've planned more carefully, this is at the upper end of the small town of Government Camp, but off of Highway 26. It's next to a rest area, so you have an excuse to get off the road and stop for a bit.
