Cloud Cap Inn on Mount Hood

Photograph of an unidentified man walking outside the Cloud Cap Inn building on the northeastern side of Mount Hood in October 1926. A cropped version of this photograph was one of three published on the front page of the Oregon Journal on Wednesday, October 6, 1926, under the headline “Cloud Cap Road Is Way of Splendor.” The photographs had the following caption: “Scenes along newly-completed spur road leading from Mouth Hood Loop highway to Cloud Cap inn, giving suggestion of scenic wonders unfolded along trip.” This photograph had the additional caption information: “Top picture shows present inn, which Portland interests are seeking to rebuild according to more modern standards of capacity and convenience.” The photographs accompanied a story headlined “Cloud Cap Road Finished; Fine View Unfolded.” The story reported that the 10-mile-long road, ending at the Cloud Cap Inn, would officially be known as the Cooper spur of the Mount Hood Loop Highway. Construction of the road had begun in 1925.
