The wee thing barely visible, just to the right of Hood... Brilliant photo.

Well spotted that man! I think it's St Helens. Right shape and Adams is further east of the chain.

And thanks for the compliment. I'll pass it on to the guy that took the shot.

Shot is taken from North Sis, right? In that case it has to be Adams, because Saint Helens would appear left of Jefferson. Or possibly, it could even be Rainier, although Hood would be a bit in the way. On the other hand, it (Rainier) would make more sense considering it's relative height on this photograph.

I continue to be unsure on this one. I've had a look at both my Adams & St H photos and reckon I can make out the Sisters from both.

There's this one from Adams. I haven't posted any of my St H shots on SP because there are so many already - but I reckon I see the Sisters in those too.

I'm beginning to lean Adams too - but I wouldn't put a bet on it.

Cheers,

Martin

The entire range from Sisters (Shasta) to Adams are in one line, while Saint Helens seems to be the southernmost member of a second arc of Cascade volcanoes, beginning 50 miles west of Adams. Having said that, you should be able to make out the Sisters to the left of Hood from Adams, and to the right of Hood from Saint Helens.

But if you compare both photos, I'm more and more inclined to believe it could be Rainier as well, because on that picture from Adams, you can clearly see glaciation on the Sisters, where on that picture from North Sis, you can't see it on our mystery mountain, while visibility was even greater. That means that the distance must be much more as well. I'll call it a toss-up between Adams and Rainier.
