Mt Adams from the air

layers of ice
cover once volcanic

Debbie, I think this is a picture of Mt. Rainier, which has a lot more snow and glaciers than Mount St. Helens. The top ridge of St. Helens is also a lot flatter. I'm nearly certain this is actually Mt. Rainier.

Re: Michael Dylan Welch

I was wondering if I had misidentified the mountain because I didn't think it looked like the photos of Mt. St. Helens- I was taking the word of the guy next to me whose daughter was actually sitting by the window and took the photo for me.. He said we'd already passed Rainier (we had already been in the air quite a while), so he was thinking Mt. St. Helens was the next volcano in line.

Maybe we were further east - Mt. Adams? It sort of looks like the photos of Mt. Adams.

I hadn't thought about Mt. Adams because it is a volcano you don't hear about much down here, but I didn't think the top was pointed enough for Mt. Hood, and if we had already passed Mt. Rainier....?

What do you think?

I've changed the caption to read "one of the cascade volcanoes" instead, since I'm not altogether sure which volcano it actually is!
