Oregon's Hood - Tallest Mountain and Volcano
Mount Hood, called Wy'east by the Multnomah tribe, is a stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon. It is 11,249 feet (3,429 m) in height according to a 1991 measurement by the U.S. National Geodetic Survey. Mt. Hood's Palmer Glacier provides access to Summer Skiing with a lift. It is also a challenge for mountain climbers and a beautiful background to all country surrounding the volcano.
Its most recent eruptions spewed steam and ash during the late 1800s. The volcano may be sleeping but it is definitely not dead.
