Oregon Cascade peaks list

Postby OOG » Thu Feb 18, 2010 7:51 pm

While browsing mountain pages in the Oregon Cascades something I've noticed is that navigating beteween some of the lesser peaks can be very dificult. The Cascade Volcanoes Page does an excellent job representing the major Volcanoes but there are dozens of smaller peaks that lack a proper home. For example

http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock ... -rock.html

http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock ... piter.html

http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock ... regon.html

http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock ... butte.html

http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock ... ntain.html

Theses are just a few, there are dozens more.

So I think the best way to fix this would be a list of all Oregon Cascade peaks on summitpost. I would include a brief overview and mabye a couple photos, but nothing too in depth, it would mostly be for taxonomy purposes. Currently it is very difficult to navigate this stretch of the range on summitpost and I think this list would do a lot to improve that.

And by all means if anyone thinks this is a bad idea, do let me know. I'd rather find out now if the summitpost community thinks this a bad idea then find out later, after I've spent hours monkeying through the HTML code necessary to make this list. But I've been a lifelong fan of these mountinas and would like to do what I can to see that they are represented better here.

Look at Bubba Suess page for northern california to see how an outstanding cascade area and range page is done.

There are so many peaks in the Oregon cascades you might want to break it into two or three pages unless you are looking at making it a list page. In that case maybe look at doing an excel spreadsheet type of page like a lot of the P2K pages have.

I agree, that Bubbas page for the California Cascades is excellent, that was what gave me the idea. The thing is putting a page of similar quality for the Oregon cascades would require about three times as much effort since they are about three times as long. I am mostly familiar with the southern Oregon cascades since those are the closest "real" mountains to my home, so If I were to make an area page it would only cover the stretch from diamond lake south or so. But even then it would be alot of effort to do justice to such a high profile range. If some other SPers were interested in doing pages for other regions of the cascades I would do something like that.

But for now the biggest issue (I think) is just navigating between sp pages for the range. This isn't a problem with the California cascades because of the page. I think a simple list with a short overview would resolve the issue. A page like this would not be anywhere near as detailed ad Bubbas because it wouldn't be designed to do everything his page is for.

This is mostly just my opinion, I think a list page would do alot of good summitpost, then again I haven't been here that long, so I wanted to see if anyone else felt the same way before starting a huge project on a high profile range. Also I don't want to torture myself with Html Code to build a page no one will use.

I think an Oregon Cascades page(s) is a great idea... do it. Here's another possible layout idea, which is broken into regions...
