* Crescent Summit 180+ *
    This is a picture from the top of Crescent Mountain here in Oregon. A little more than 180 degree panoramic here, looking to the East you can see part of the Cascade mountain range. Slightly out of view to the far north you can't really make out Mt. Hood in this picture but it was easily seen and I did get some good pictures. Mt. Hood is the highest point in Oregon standing at 11,235 feet above sea level. Then to the right on down the Cascades there's the very obvious Mt. Jefferson that stands at about 10,485 feet above sea level. Then you can see, to the right, Three Finger Jack. Behind the ridge next is Black Butte and then Mt. Washington. Then there's the beautiful Three Sisters mountains. These mountains usually have much more snow on them than they currently have.     To the far South I could barely see what I think was Mt. Shasta in Northern California. I have been told that you can see it from there.
