M is for Mountain

Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday round 3
and ABC Wednesday Anthology
have progressed to the letter M.

As we flew along the Cascade Range through the states of Washington, Oregon and (Northern) California, my camera was in constant use. My problem, when I later looked at my shots, is that I am not sure which mountain is which. I'll try to guess in some labels!


Mt. Rainier.


?

I'm pretty sure that this is Mount St. Helens,
showing the devastation of the eruption.


Could this be Mount Shasta
in Northern Cakifornia?


This picture of grandson Byron Shock in the Swiss Alps
was snapped by one of his parents.

And this should be a lesson to me keep better files!

Looks like you had a window seat. Mt. Rainier would definately have snow on it. I think you get a good view of Mt. Hood in Oregon too on that route. Mt. Shasta generally has less snow this time of year. Fun post Granny...

I have seen the same sight, but I would not even try to guess which is which. A nice sight anyhow.

Those are great shots - especially that last one of your son! Mountains are so humbling, aren't they?

I think your ? is Mt. Hood.

Laini Taylor said...

What a scenic flight! I always love the view, flying home to Portland. I suppose that could be Mt Hood, but I'd think it would have more snow on it, so maybe not.
