Geo 1095: January 3, Day 733: Glacial Valley

A couple fairly poor photos to finish off our trip to Mount Hood and Timberline, this one was taken coming down from Government Camp, at the pass, to Rhododendron, on the valley floor. Here, we are switch-backing down the wall of the glacial valley. The classic "U" shape isn't as clear as I'd hoped, but this is the best of a few photos in which I tried to capture it. The combination of being in a moving, swaying, car along with the glare from the setting sun did not make the task easy. Given the tall and thick forests of the west side, capturing decent shots of the glacial valleys in the Western Cascades is surprising difficult.

Photo unmodified. October 10, 2012. FlashEarth Location. (Looks right, but only best guess.)
