Mt Jefferson was known as Seekseekqua or Kussail Teminbi by local Native Americans and is one of the more distinctive mountain peaks in the PNW with it's pointy top. We were delighted to get such a clear view of it on a hike to the Iron Mountain Lookout in Cascadia, Oregon. Knew I'd have to come home and paint the beautiful view!
