Photographer's Note

This photo is of the mountain known as South Sister. The location is in central Oregon along the Cascade range. The lake is Sparks lake. I was walking along the Ray Atkinson trail when I took this shot. This is an extremely volcanic area with dozens of small cinder cones and 3 strato volcano's over 10,000 feet within just a few miles of each other. It is all part of the Ring of Fire. This is a great arc of volcanoes that streatch 40,000km from the southwest Pacific up along east Asia, around the arctic, down the north American coast into South America. 90% of the worlds earthquakes happen along this ring.
