Mt. Hood (11239'/3426m) summit - Oregon high point
Mount Hood

Atop Oregon's highest point, Mt. Hood (elev. 11,239'), part of the Cascade volcanics.  It dominates the Portland skyline & is still active by the presence of fumarole vents found at a feature known as Hot Rocks, though is presently dormant.  While I could see south to Mt. Jefferson in the morning, the views got hazy by smoke from nearby forest fires shrouding the peak from view (look very carefully & you can still glimpse a trace of it however), though to the north one can see Mt. St. Helens & the higher Mount Rainier & Mount Adams in Washington state.  The north face is steep & descends rapidly down to Coe & Eliot Glaciers, some of the largest in the state.  These glaciers are not typically in view when most ascend during Spring when there is still much more snow & the summit area is heavily corniced.  Down below to the south one can see the historic Timberline Lodge & the Palmer Ski Lift which was active w/ skiers & snowboarders, some of them travelled to the top of the White River Glacier to descend where parts of it did not have exposed crevasses.  Rusted wiring & a few pieces of wooden boards are remnants of a fire lookout that was built in 1915 on the summit, though the tower was abandoned in 1935 & in 1941 it subsequently slid off the mountain.  The mountain top has had a few marriages take place, one of the earliest was the marriage of Miss Blanche Pechette & Frank Pierce on September 1, 1915.  Was also able to see downtown Portland from the top w/ a good zoom.
