Despite the limited height (3.200 m) and the season (July) there is still a lot of snow and large glacier, is it normal or because it was in 1975...?

Re: Despite

The snowpack and how long it stays in the spring / summer varies greatly from year to year in the Pacific Northwest depending on the winter weather conditions - el nino and all that.

Can you get there from here?

So, is this photo taken from somewhere up the ridge that you are looking at here?

Four stars both, my kind of stuff!

Re: Can you get there from here?

This photo was taken from HERE looking south toward the summit.

The other photo was taken about 0.15 km to the west and lower on the mountain along the narrow east-west trending ridge that ends about where this photo was taken. (About here )

Has to be one of Oregon's finest summits.

You make it look so appealing with this dynamic composition. Simply perfect. Thanks 10/10

Re: Front page magazine

Thanks. It is amusing that depending on your birthday, you may not have even been born when this photo was taken..........
