Mt. McLoughlin--Angel Wings

Mt. McLoughlin in southwest Oregon isn't very tall, but it is an almost perfect volcanic cone. Sleeping for many years, its tranquil beauty reflects in the still waters of the many nearby lakes. Seen from Willow Lake in the spring, when the snow is melting from its slopes, a remarkable image of angel wings appears near the summit. It is a sign to residents of the valleys below that winter is over and that summer is on its way. (Original)
