Oregon’s Highest Peak

Mt. Hood-Hood River County Oregon

Mount Hood’s last major eruption occurred in the 1790’s not long before Lewis and Clark’s expedition to the Pacific Northwest. In the mid-1800’s, local residents reported minor explosive activity, but since that time the volcano has been quiet. Someday, however, Mount Hood will erupt again.
Lake Tillium and Mt Hood Located 67 miles east of Portland

When the mountain erupts again City of Portland may be affected by volcanic dust and ash similar to the 1980 eruption of Mt. Saint Helens.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great day.
