Ruth Mountain Panorama – Cascades, WA

Post by blogger | June 29, 2011      

A few days ago, on Ruth Mountain up here in Washington, I dragged out my new Canon G12 camera and messed around with creating a pan photo. Perfect day for doing so, little haze, no clouds obscuring anything. Will add more terrain labels, but please share corrections for any mistakes and I’ll redo. Really fun to remember the view from up there! (Apologies if this doesn’t view well on your computer, it requires a large monitor.)

    Has that big route off the N Face of Shuksan ever been skied, I wonder – tons of schrund danger… but good mountaineers could mitigate that (not me!) I would guess…

    Really cool. So rugged.

    Doesn’t Shuksan have a place in the lore of Snyder and Kerouac?

    Kerouac was a fire ranger in the North Cascades, there is a great book about it… Poets on the Peaks…

    Yeah that book is SWEET. I just can’t remember if it talked about Shuksan. I’ll probably delve into it tonight and find out.

    @sthrendyle: Lowell Skoog recently compiled a list of known ski lines on Shuksan:

    Amazing panorama Louie. I’ve got a G10, which is great, so I hope you like the G12.

    Just moved to the North Cascades from Carbondale this week… this place is inspirational.

    Sick-ass bunch of ~7k’-9k’ peaks. Nice job, Louie!
