Mount Hood Summer Solstice 2015 — photo 1 of 30: The view from Timberline Lodge, at about 6,000 feet, on the southern slope of the 11,249-foot Mount Hood, the highest peak in Oregon. Seen here, nearly 50 miles to the south, is the second highest, the 10,497-foot Mount Jefferson.

About half way between Mount Jefferson and the left edge of the photo you can see the Three Sisters, about 83 to 88 miles away. In the middle of the group is the 10,085-foot North Sister. Just to its left and behind it is the 10,358-foot South Sister. On the right is the 10,047-foot Middle Sister.

On the left edge of the photo two more peaks can barely be seen. An employee at Timberline Lodge said that they were Three Fingered Jack, but that was incorrect because that peak is behind Mount Jefferson from this angle. Using Google Earth, I would say that the peak on the left is the 9,175-foot Broken Top, about 90 miles away, and the peak to its right is the 9,068-foot Mount Bachelor, about 97 miles away.

Summer solstice 2015. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
