      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Unidentified Peak(s)...

Recommended Posts

I originally posted this in the newbies section, so I wouldn't waste space here... but it was suggested to post it here since it would get much more traffic. I appologize for this semi off topic.

 

I have been attempting to identify the mt/peaks, and lake, in this painting scene...

I was originally told at purchase this was of the Twin Sisters (antique store, probably clueless)... I wasn't convinced of this, and have been attempting to correctly identify for quite sometime (museums, art galleries).. I decided to try here since someone has probably climbed these peaks. I have very good reason to believe this group of peaks are in the Pacific NW.

 

One poster responded that they appeared to be the Hozameen group.. this very well could be.

 

Any additional opinions/responses would be very much appreciated.

 

Again sorry for the OT & thanks

It looks to be Hozomeen from the Southwest, from a perspective just S of Silver Creek and above the shores of Upper Ross Lake. Little Jackass Mtn in front.

 

Assuming all that is correct, then the peaks in the painting (in order) would be: North Hozomeen, Little Jackass, Point 7383, and South Hozomeen.

 

The Lake in the painting would be Ross Lake.

I don't know if this helps, but here is Hozomeen from Ross (it's from the West).

your photo is taken from further north than in the painting.

artists take great liberties with subjects like this, so you may never know fer sure. as an oregon boy, that looks like an artist's melodramatic rendition of Broken Top.
