Three Fingers Lookout panorama - click to enlarge

Click the image to enlarge

This picture was taken at the Three Fingers Summit on July 1, 2009. From left to right, there are two of the three fingers, Whitehorse Mountain, Glacier Peak, and the Three Fingers Lookout. A beautiful summer day in the heart of the Cascades, just 90 minutes from Seattle. A bit of a long dirt road and to get to the Goat Flats Trailhead. Just one other person made the 16 mile round trip treck. His head is in the panorama.

Cheyenne Indian History

Cheyenne (from the Sioux name Sha-hi’yena, Shai-ena, or (Teton) Shai-ela, ‘people of alien speech,’ from sha’ia, ‘to speak a strange language’).  An important Plains tribe of the great Algonquian family.  They call themselves Dzǐ’tsǐǐstäs, apparently nearly equivalent to ‘people alike,’ i.e. ‘our people’ from ǐtsǐstau. ‘alike’ or ‘like this’ (animate); (ehǐstă, ‘he is from, or of, the same kind’–Peter); by a slight change of accent it might also mean ‘gashed ones’, or possibly ‘tall people.’  The tribal form as here given is the third person plural.

Joe DiMaggio grins in the New York Yankees’ dressing room as he holds up three fingers to denote the three home runs he hit as the Yanks defeated the Washington Senators 8 to 1 in the first game of a doubleheader at Washington, September 10, 1950. Joe is the first player ever to belt three homers in one game into Griffith Stadium’s left field bleachers, 405 feet from home plate. He also got a double.
