Default Mt. Jefferson Hike Photos

Here are a handful of photos from a hike I took on trip in and around Jefferson Park. Wasn't expecting this much snow, good thing we packed the snowshoes. A 5 mile drive on the most narrow and rocky road I've driven on lead to the trail head. The hike was about 4 miles to the ridge we camped on, and another mile to Jefferson Park. Great weather and only saw 3 other people. Spent two nights and came back with about 30 mosquito bites....but well worth it. Brought the K10D, 18mm-250mm lens, tripod, graduated neutral density filters, and cable shutter release.

Camping on the ridge, with view of Mt. Jefferson. ( 100 ISO 1/4 sec. f/13)





View from the tent with a treat..worth the weight (100 ISO 1/80 f/4)



Sunset with Views of Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, and Mt. Rainier




Mt. Jefferson Panoramic from camp



Hiking down the snow field with Mt. Hood view (100 ISO 1/1600 sec. f/4)




Relaxing on a ridge with Jefferson



Nerve racking one-lane mountain road



Long exposure stars trails over Jefferson
200 ISO 2,830 sec. f/6.7



Alpine Lake (100 ISO 1/1000 sec. f/4)

Stunning views! Some a little scary - the one of the road. But, what a beautiful place to visit.

Yep the mountains have had a lot of snow all summer long was not that hot at all this year nor did it snow much on the lower levels last winter.. but i am sure it will this winter.. its like a start to the freeze again. How long did you stay up there? Great Shots of course at that level there is no fog or smog to fight as well as action noise which I feel the cameras can pick up in the lower levels of the Mountain Ranges...

Thanks Lou. I botched one on the first night that I exposed for well over an hour, so thankfully this one turned out. It was cold and windy that night, and I had my tripod set up about 200 ft. away. Not a whole lot of fun getting out back out of my sleeping bag, but worth it.

We had gorgeous weather, we stayed for two nights which gave me two chances as the star trails and sunsets. We were at around 6,000 ft camping, and hiked up to over 7,000 ft. to the ridge above Jefferson Park. Crystal clear our whole trip, allowing views for miles.

Looks like a great trip, and some really fine photos of it! That rosy dawn pano shot from camp is especially fine - lovely delicate colors, rich patterns, excellent composition!

Beautiful photos of a wonderful area of our country. Reminds me of several hiking and climbing trips I took back in the 1970s and '80s. I miss those days!
