It's one of Oregon's most-travelled Wilderness areas. It tops out at Oregon's third-highest elevation, the summit of South Sister (see image below) at 10,354 ft.. Shown in the picture is 6,000 ft. elevation LInton Meadows. This idyllic meadow is far enough into the Wilderness, and large enough, that it is not overrun. Linton Creek flows deep and pure in a quiet broken only by its own fall over a 15 foot high lip about a mile downstream from this image.

Below, I enjoy a lonely but magnificent sunset from the spacious summit of South Sister. In Oregon, there are only two places where you can watch the sunset from a higher perch, and those are the the cramped summits of Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson, visible as the two most distant peaks on the right in the first photo below.
