Real Or Ideal?

Today's mail brought a box with over 600 old, boring postcards I bought on Ebay (I collect boring and tacky postcards, but also use them for collages and other art projects). While looking through these cards, I found this one, and was reminded of my visit to the very spot that photo was taken.

It was a cold, windy, mostly cloudy day when I visited, and I was underdressed for weather that at about 55 degrees fahrenheit seemed way too chilly for July. The clouds obscured Mt. Hood, so I didn't get the postcard views. It was still a beautiful area, however, and the idealized, color saturated view in the postcard doesn't do it justice.
