CaliforniaHerps has a PNW section too: http://www.californiaherps.com/noncal/n ... cipis.html
Yes, it was some photos from that page that pushed me towards believing that's what was seen. Thanks again! :)

Those clear cuts sure look like 1985, but the mountain seems strangely whole.

Re: Historic Pics of MSH

I took your Mt. Margaret photo and lined it up with one of mine from the same spot. (It's not a great photo because it was October and the sun was low and directly behind the mountain.) Then I traced the pre- and post- profiles of the mountain and the shoreline of Spirit Lake... and I made a GIF: T...

Re: Little Hummocks Lizard

It does look like an alligator lizard. Did you browse the photos on CaliforniaHerps.com? They might have photos of young ones. I wasn't aware of that site, thanks! I'm leaning now towards that being what it was, from photos on this page... http://californiaherps.com/lizards/pages/e.c.principis.html...

Little Hummocks Lizard

Is this a juvenile northern alligator lizard? Doesn't really seem to match photos I've found online, but not seeing anything else matching even remotely closer. Hopefully the leaves and litter provide some scale. Dude wasn't more than 8" long or so, and not much thicker than a pencil. https://i.imgu...

Re: Gifford Pinchot Trails Reopen (mostly)

Skamania is just not all that organized on their website. I think they want to welcome visitors, but just not too damn many all at once. For those not inclined to read the press release, they also provided both porta-potties, and a map to find them . Given the parks and businesses are mostly all clo...

Re: Seeking: Volcano Viewpoints

Oh, that looks perfect! I was worried about there being trees in the way but that looks great! Off-trail and pretty well above the timberline. Click the photo, then go back/forth to see other shots in the same vicinity. The extreme wide-angle on that does "push" the mountain a lot further away than...

Your coordinate for Mt Adams appears to be in Yakama territory. The Bumper would be great, but is closer than 6 miles, maybe 4.
Extreme wide-angle (360°) from The Bumper to offer an idea...

Re: Seeking: Volcano Viewpoints

Triangulation Peak is just under 7 miles from Mt Jefferson and offers this perspective... https://live.staticflickr.com/1940/44660082955_bbcef5fdbe_c.jpg If you went out to Park Butte (only 3 miles away), rather than shooting from Park Ridge, you might capture something closer to what you'd hoped fo...

The visitor's center might be closed, but I don't see any reason they'd close the hiking trails.
