79 - Spring rhododendrons on Devil's Ridge looking toward Mt. Hood. For a short time each spring they provide much beauty in the Cascade Mountain Range. One long ridge is named "Rhododendron Ridge" for the thousands of acres of the plant that grow in the old logging clear cuts. To man and known animals, they are a deadly poisonous plant.
80 - Joe with his 4" spotting scope. From Devil's Ridge, with that scope and the proper eyepiece, Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood is clearly visible from at least 40 miles away.
