Mt. Jefferson Alcove 2, Timberline Lodge - click on photo for larger image.
This is the daytime view from the Jefferson Alcove on the Mezzanine level (Ram's Head Bar) of Timberline Lodge. Mt. Jefferson is the mountain on the left side in the distance. The pole hanging down in the middle of the window is a buttress, it supports the center of the large pane of glass to keep it from breaking during storms. The severe weather on the exposed mountain-side means additional measures such as the buttressed windows are necessary. The original design for the lodge called for 3 side-by-side windows in this space, but they were switched to this single picture window after figuring out a way to keep it from breaking.
