Is this looking South at part of the Oregon coastal range?



Any named peaks?

I was afraid someone would ask! :-) Yes, this is looking south, but I'm not knowledgable on the Coast Range, so would have to do a little research. Might help to go back on a clear day too! If I'm not mistaken, this view was slightly west of south if anything, so we wouldn't be looking toward the main range. But I wouldn't swear to that because I didn't get out my compass, nor do I remember if there were more prominent peaks to the east. I couldn't take my eyes off the clouds and the setting sun! :-)

Compare this picture to this one. (no , I don't have a zoom or telephoto lens) You can see (at least I think you can) the same peaks. The ocean is in the background so yes, this would be in the Coast Range southwest from Saddle. I looked in the Gazetteer and I believe one of these peaks is Onion Peak. If I recall, most of these had roads to their tops but I could be wrong about that.



Someone who might be able to help on this is Gacland who lives in this area.



Another thing, in the faint distance up and to the left in the picture looks like another peak. Wonder if that is Neahkahnie Mtn......................

Only stuff I've hiked in coast range (besides Saddle Mtn) is the Elk-King Mountain traverse. A good conditioning hike for climbing season that I would recommend.

The mountains in your pic do do look suspiciously similar. But I'm not seeing what you're wondering might be Neahkahnie.



Brian, you've been hiking and climbing all over Oregon, so I wonder how many of the county highpoints you've done so far. Take a look here and count 'em up - I'd be interested to know. I'm working on the Washington and Oregon county HPs, and here's my completion map at the moment. :-)

Nevermind about Neahkahnie, I think it's just a cloud.



I counted from that list and I think I only have 10 out of 36 in Oregon. And 3 of those are repeat ones (South Sister, Hood and Thielsen). Looks interesting though. I may have to delve further into that. Looks like it could be fun.



What is the lone county in North Carolina you did?

Hi Brian,

Yeah, forget about Neah-kah-nie, you can't see it from Saddle. The other peaks in the pic are also hard to determine what they are. Onion Peak may be one of them, if so, it would be the rounded off one. The other peaks may be Kidders Butte, Sugarloaf Mtn, and South Sugarloaf Mtn, they are the only others that have any kind of elevation on the topo map.

Look up Kidders Butte on topozone, if you blow all the way out at 200,000 scale you can see Saddle Mtn, South to Nehalem Bay.

Hope this is helpful.

Peace.

Brian, I thought I had replied to this long ago - sorry. That's Yancey County, the home of the highest peak in the US east of the Mississippi, Mt. Mitchell.

Funny you should reply today on this. I was just looking at this photo again last night wondering if I should head out and find that pointy peak on the left and see what it's like in the snow. Too many chores today though.

I really enjoy looking through your catalog of photos. There are some breathtaking images. This photo I have as my "Desktop" on my computer at work. (I hope you don't mind) My buddy Brian Jenkins got me hooked on hiking and this website. I'm starting a photography class next week, so hopefully my photos will be half as good as some of yours. I'm curious though, how do you protect your camera from the elements?

Thanks Rob. No problem using the photo - I wouldn't put them here if I were worried about that! :-)



I've been carrying an Olympus OM-2 SLR since 1977, and it still works great. I have two front-carrying camera cases, one big and one small, so the camera is always handy and out of the way. It doesn't work so well for class 4+ rock (although I've done it some), and I wouldn't want to try a steep snow or ice slope with it there either (might interfere with a good self arrest), but most of the time it's fine. You can find the cases at any camera store. You'll want the highly elastic padded straps. Click here to see my big case. :-)

Thanks! Yeah, it's pretty common to get above the clouds in this part of the country, but not too often do I get an opportunity to watch the sunset from above the clouds. It was gorgeous! -Bob
