~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #222: Mountains are Calling ~

Wouldn’t you know, all my photos of Mount Constitution on Orcas Island, are not on this computer! Ah well, save those old ones for another time. Here are three shots from my archives that showcase some of the lovely mountains I have viewed.

The Olympic Mountains of Washington State, photographed from the west side of Orcas Island. “Located in the northwest corner of the state, this mountain range rises from the Pacific Ocean to an elevation of 7,980 feet at the peak of Mount Olympus.”

Diamond Peak, with sunrise glowing on its remaining snow in July, as seen from Odell Lake at the summit of Willamette Pass. Part of the Cascade Range of Oregon, Diamond Peak reaches an elevation of 8,748 feet (2,555m).

Crater Lake, located in the Oregon Cascade Mountain range is 5 by 6 miles (8.0 by 9.7 km) across, with a caldera rim ranging in elevation from 7,000 to 8,000 feet (2,100 to 2,400 m). Though I have featured it in previous posts, it is such a beautiful setting – worth another view!

Thanks to Amy for taking us off on another nature adventure!

From the mountains to the valleys, wherever you find yourself please honor our earth, be kind and stay safe.🐾
