This region of Oregon's
snow-capped Cascade range brings to mind Oregon's highest peak,
11,245 ft. Mt. Hood, and world-famous Timberline Lodge. The region
also includes Oregon's second tallest peak, 10,496 ft. Mt. Jefferson,
which lies 50 miles to the south.

an Iris Glicee signed art print entitled "Mt. Hood, Sandy
Headwall." This 20x30 art print portrays an vivid scene of
the waterfalls and glaciers of Mt. Hood's west side, the side
visible from Metropolitan Portland.
Dreamscape: This starry image began
with an image of Mt. Hood's relatively unknown north face after
the solo photographer spent an inspired night at 8,000 feet on
the windy margin of a glacier. The stars wheeled overhead in crystal
perfection while the glaciers glowed softly in response.
* Note: this image is digitally manipulated and should not be
construed as other than an artistic representation of that perfect
Mt Jefferson is a most imposing glacier and rock climb, and
the approach marches to it, unlike Mt. Hood, are long and strenuous.
Image 2b (below left).... Secret Tarn high above Jefferson
Park--- a gem free of ice only once every few years, so most never
glimpse its rare beauty. This tarn lies 65 trail miles south from
Timberline Lodge along the Pacific Crest Trail.

Image 3b. "A Walk on the Edge." Climber on the Whitewater
Glacier with Mt. Hood to the north.
Image 4b. Mt. Jeffereson's west side in June. A view seldom
glimpsed by most Willamette Valley residents, due to the many
obstructing lower ranges. Here seen in this view across the canyon
of the Mollala River near Table Rock Pk. in the Table Rock Wilderness
east of the town of Mollala.
