Mt. Hood
Mt. Hood, the tallest of Oregon's Cascade peaks, stands watch over the awe-inspiring Columbia River Gorge from a height of 11,239 ft. The often-photographed glacier-glazed peak is home to year-round skiing and snowboarding. Run-off from its volcanic slopes enriches soil in the valleys below, which are famous for their production of pears, peaches, cherries, apricots and apples. One of the largest concentrations of high waterfalls in the nation spills forth from the cliffs and ledges that wall in the mighty Columbia River to create the nation's only national scenic area.
