McClellan Viewpoint on Oldman Pass provides a picture-perfect perspective of Mt. St. Helens.
Interestingly enough this is the same Major-General George McClellan who was eventually fired by President Lincoln in the Civil War for not taking the fight to the enemy.
Prior to Civil War, McClellan was an explorer/surveyor in the Pacific Northwest. For those of you with a history bent, McClellan wasn’t particularly good at surveying either.
Nonetheless, when I stopped at the McClennan Viewpoint on a sunny, late winter day, the crystal-clear vistas were striking.
