From the twoer you could see The Sister, Mt Hood, St Helens, Adams and Rainier. Gawdawful country but some beautiful views and good steelhead fishing...this was before the John Day Dam.

So glad you enjoyed; thanks! Shot with my new-to-me Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 and 14-140 mm lens. I was pleased with the fast focus.
Amazing you could see so many volcanoes from one spot! Near the top of the national park entrance (Sunrise), you have Mt Rainier right in your face + when the weather is clear, Mt Adams to south and Mt Baker to north. Breathtaking.

Thank you again, and yes I've added The Sisters to the list of places to see! S-

So I'm always thrilled when one works out as this did (tiny nitpick to self: need an inch more on right to show where mountain disappears behind foothills.
Minnie, I had to look up Trout Lake. It is due south of Mt Adams and I was shooting from due east. With wilderness preventing a direct route, it's about a two hour drive (south, then west) Would love to see your photos of that area!

It looks like you caught the old girl in all her glory but wonder if there were any considerations with metering against the wide variety of colors and reflective surfaces. Was it hard to compensate for the snow or did it all fall into place in processing? Really beautiful! S-
