Which Trail/Campsite is this?

Post by dhaval257 » January 7th, 2021, 10:22 am

Hello all fellow hikers,

Recently I came across this picture from amazing photographer Andrew Studer. He is such an amazing photographer (https://andrewstuder.com/)

One of his picture has been itching me, Would anyone know what trail is this where photographer has setup camp?

It looks about right for the view from Tom, Dick and Harry Mountain. Mt. Adams is on the left shoulder of Hood.

I guess that Mirror Lake is hidden in the fog behind the man on the rocks.

Yep, that dark stripe is Mississippi Head, so that’s my assumption too.

does anyone recognize the rock with the man on it?

I like that that picture has two "easter eggs" you only see when staring at it - man on rock and Mt Adams

Below is the view from the spot on THD that everyone goes to. I don't see that rock below, and in other photos I have Mt. Adams is further to the left from the slopes of Mt. Hood. My guess is that the photo was taken from one of the other summits of TDH that people don't normally visit because the official trail doesn't go there.

This panorama, not mine, shows much of the area above Mirror Lake. The ridge dropping into the fog/clouds behind the man on the rocks matches the ridge east of Mirror Lake.

This LiDAR image of the ridge may help you find the rock outcrop.
