Embracing The Mountain
Mount Jefferson, Oregon, from the Pacific Crest Trail
This was taken from the high point of the trail heading south from Breitenbush Lake, just before the trail descends to Jefferson Park. Mount Jefferson is very photogenic, and it was well worth the effort to get there. You can see several of the five glaciers on the mountain from this angle, including Whitewater, Jefferson Park and Mill Creek Glaciers. There are some photos below of the same mountain but from the south side.
