The pictures I promised

Now these shots are beautiful and when I took them was the same day as the three part story below. Tomorrow I will post some shots of how fast the weather has changed. I think you will like them. Okay, its Mt. Jefferson. Midlife slices just had to press the issue. (and she was right I should of made sure first) Bless her big heart anyway. I shall try harder to be more thorough in the future as she was quick to point out, I am the answer guy! Can't remember which Mountain this one is (we have a lot that can be seen from here)
This one is called 3 finger Jack. No really that is its name. If you look at it from the other side its looks like some one holding up three fingers side by side.

Still don't know its name but I'm sure my dad or one of my sisters will post a note and tell me or uh you.


This is part of the 3 sisters Mountains, one theory is that they were once just one mountain and that a major eruption blew the top off and left us this. It is thought that it would of dwarfed Everest. Its just a theory. But I do know that the south sister is swelling and I'm sure it will blow, maybe even in my life time (Great, the last one that went near here made a mess out of things and cost 57 people there life.)

The big city has many draw backs and scenery like this is one of the biggest. Of course I don not have to climb cliffs if I make a wrong turn either.

Wait! Hold on a minute. The "answer guy" doesn't know the name of that mountain?? I'm crushed. I thought you had all the answers. *pout*

Hey MLS, I know the name of the mountain, I just don't know which one it is. But just for you I will send it to the master and then tell you!
