Beautiful. I like how I can see the structure and erosion pattern within the rock foot that makes up Gloria's. From the air you can really see what a unique mountain it is. A shot like this would be great for an Elden climbing guide.

It would be rad if that was the cover photo and the back cover was a similiar shot of the east side of the mountain.

Flicking clear cutting is an abomination and looks like hell. Fortunately this has grown over, but it takes years for that 2nd growth to cover up the mess the timber crews leave in their wake.

"Flicking clear cutting is an abomination and looks like hell."

There was no clear cutting here.
It's a fairly solid volcanic mass up that side, much steeper than the photo makes it look.

And of course the Elden fire of '75 started on this side and swept up the canyon to spill over the top.

That's an awesome view.

Found this cool shot of Mt. Elden online. Furthest right piece of rock is the Red Dragon. To the left of that is the Devil's Chair. The canyon in the center is Solitude, then Oaklands, and finally the upper portions of West Elden.
