Corvallis to Redmond

Markus Dietz was a co-worker from Köln, Germany, who visited Eugene in
January of 2002. The weather cleared enough one Sunday for us to take a
flight over the Cascades to Redmond. Our route took us over Oak Ridge and Odell Lake
on the way to Redmond and direct back to Corvallis. On the way back just north of the
Three Sisters, we could see as far north as Mt. Adams in Washington.
It was a little hazy, but not as hazy as the pictures make it look.
