Geo 365: March 23, Day 82: Central Oregon Skyline

Coming into La Pine on Route 31, there's a nice long straight stretch with a lovely view of the central Oregon Cascades, over what I refer to as the East Cascade apron (not a formal term). From the left to right in the above photo, South Sister peeks over the shoulder of Mount Bachelor, and either North or Middle Sister sits to its right. (I think North, but I'm not sure.) Finally, off in the trees is Broken Top. Bachelor is significantly closer to the location of this photo, so it appears to be the largest and tallest of these peaks, despite the fact that it's the lowest and smallest. Nevertheless, it's still a significant volcano, at 9068 feet.

Photo run through the Auto Levels processor in, to cut through the haze. August 20, 2011. FlashEarth Location (approximate, shot at 60 mph, and backed out enough to see the peaks I mentioned).
