Photographer's Note

I saw a beautiful picture of Mt. Washington with lupine in the foreground; I've been trying to get a picture like that since then. In 2009, the snow lingered late; on my previous visit in June, the road was deep under the snow.

In my many visits to My Washington, I've learned that the best chance of getting a reflection in Big Lake is early in the morning before the wind comes up. Anyway it was too late for lupine but I did get a reflection.

Mt Washington is a part of the Cascade Mountain Range, One of my earliest themes on TE. This volcano chain runs from Mt. Garibaldi in British Columbia to Shasta and Lassen in Califonia. Washington's are tallest with Baker, Ranier, St. Helens & Adams. Oregon has the most volcanoes in the chain with 17 cones; this includes the more famous Mt Hood and collapsed Mt Mazama which forms Crater Lake.
