Photographer's Note

This is a view, looking down, of the Castellated Ridge on Mt. Adams, in the White Mountains. The shot was taken with a zoom lens, though I don't recall the exact magnification. From a distance, the ridge looks precarious, though hikers mainly feel confronted with a stretch of scrambling, which is normally arduous and painstaking. The second highest peak in "The Whites," Mt. Adams still has an elevation of less than 6,000 feet. The sense of enormity is felt less from the mountain itself than from the spaciousness surrounding it, and from the sloping multitude of trees, swelling almost like an ocean.
