Our Daily Sykes # 215- Mt. Hood from Near Mirror Lake

Horace stands somewhere near Mirror Lake at the south-southwest “corner” of Oregon’s Mt. Hood.  If he had a cable strung to the summit it would be an eight mile ride, and an elevation change of about seven thousand feet plus.  The mountain is listed at various heights – all within a dozen feet of each other around 11245 feet.  The slide’s composition shows signs of Sykes like the flowers in the foreground. We may add that the summer snow and glacier markings near the summit resemble – or are sympathetic with – the sky.  Like most of Syke’s Kodachromes this dates most likely from the late 1940s.  (Click to Enlarge)
