You don’t have to go all the way to ‘Mt. Hood’ to see Mt. Hood. It is tall, imposing and unmissable. With its clear cut form and its elevation, this mountain is visible from most of Portland, Oregon and it’s surroundings. Standing at 11, 249 ft, Mt. Hood is also the tallest volcano in Oregon.
Mt. Hood is one of the volcanoes of the Cascade Range that runs through the states of California, Oregon and Washington. This is the sight I look forward to seeing whenever I’m in Portland (it’s become such fun, spotting this landmark from different places).
Cross the interstate bridge and into Washington and you will be able to see Mt. St. Helens. More about that volcanic mountain, later.
Here are some images of Oregon’s highest mountain – Mt. Hood:

|This picture is also from West Hills, Portland. That day, I almost didn’t recognize Mount. Hood because of the clouds that were covering the top of the volcano.|
