Jefferson on a beautiful morning from Little Agency Plains just to the West of Madras
Named for our third President, one of our country’s founding fathers, by the Lewis & Clark Discovery Expedition.  Thomas Jefferson was a true statesman and a champion of individual rights.  Thomas Jefferson believed we, as a country, needed a well-informed electorate as a prerequisite to democracy.  This still stands true today, just like the mountain that bears his name. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Jefferson_(Oregon) http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/mount_jefferson http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Jefferson http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_and_Clark_Expedition     IMG_20131006_074009_561       IMG_20131006_074009_561-ss2  IMG_1233
