Mount Hood

Time to leave the city. After Portland we travelled east for several days and the first day we drove from Portland to John Day in eastern Oregon. Our first stop of the day was near Mount Hood, a volcano which we had already seen from Portland.

Mount Hood (called Wy'east by the local Multnomah tribe) is one of the volcanoes in the Cascade Volcanic Arc, which is located from British Columbia in Canada through Washington and Oregon to North California. I showed two other Cascade Volcanoes two years ago: Mount Baker and Mount Rainier.

Mount Hood, a stratovolcano, is the highest mountain in Oregon with 3,429 metres. It is the volcano in Oregon that is most likely to erupt, its official status is ‘potentially active, even though many considered Mount Hood dormant. The last eruption was in 1866.
