View from the top of Yamsay Mountain (elev. 8,196') east of Klamath Marsh, Oregon. The peak is relatively isolated from the rest of the Cascade Range & was at one time its own shield volcano, however glaciers have scoured its north face. The views here are nice from Mount Shasta (which was obscured in the clouds in my view) up north to the Three Sisters w/ the tips of Mount McLoughlin, Crater Lake, Mount Scott, Mount Bailey, Mount Thielsen, & Diamond Peak also visible. To the north one can see Newberry Caldera & Christmas Valley plus Fort Rock. The Winter Rim is a broad upslope directly to the east that drops off into the Oregon Outback. The area used to house a fire lookout, the first one built in 1929 & second in 1961. Today the foundations are left, plus a few signatures mostly around the 1980s to recent. This panorama was a total of 247 images.
The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
