7 for your West Seattle Monday (and a question)

Thanks to JayDee for the photo. Coincidentally, another reader had emailed, wondering about the name of the area toward the left of the photo, which looks like a foothill-level peak amid a field of snow. Cross-referencing with some maps hasn’t resulted in an ID yet. Do you know? Thanks! Meantime, on with the highlights for today/tonight:

    Foothills of Mt Jupiter?

    I believe the field of snow in question from the photo is a large clear cut area on the lower slopes of Mount Jupiter.

    I would speculate the snow field is due to clear cutting of forest by either a private land owner or more likely Weyerhaeuser, Pope and Talbot or another large lumber company…

    Looks a lot like Anderson glacier and Enchanted Valley, one of my favorite former hiking areas.

    Confirming it is a snowy clearcut just west of Brinnon and it does stand out but I don’t know the name of the mountain.  I stayed in Elk Meadows in 2017 and it was newly clearcut then.

    Follow this link for a handy identifier of the major Olympic summits as seen from the Seattle area

      Thanks, that’s actually the link I sent to the original inquirer. Doesn’t appear to identify this exact area.

        I think it is just an old clear cut on the face of the eastern most ridge of Mount Jupiter between the duckabush river drainage on the south and the dosewallups river drainage on the north

        The Metzger profile is from a more Southern perspective so it’s a little deceptive. The Brothers are off frame to the left. The mountain above the snow field is Jupiter, so I’m with the Jupiter foothills commenters above. Maybe a clear-cut above Dosewallips on Hood Canal.

    If you search for Mt Jupiter on Google Maps, then look about 2/3 of the way east to Hood Canal (Brinnon), you will see this clear cut.  It is below the eastern end of the ridge leading from Mt Jupiter.  (Selecting 3D on Google Maps may make the ridge more apparent.)  This confirms most of the previous comments.

Sorry, comment time is over.
