Mount Hood, called Wy’east by the Multnomah tribe, is a potentially active stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon. It was formed by a subduction zone on the Pacific coast and rests in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located about 50 miles (80 km) east-southeast of Portland, on the border between Clackamas and Hood River counties. In addition to being Oregon’s highest mountain, it is one of the loftiest mountains in the nation based on its prominence.

A few days ago I did a day trip down to the area around Portland. One stop I made was at Multnomah Falls. This breathtaking waterfall is made up of two falls, the upper one at 542 feet tall and the lower one at 69 feet tall. I did a 6 mile hike that went to the top of the falls and all around this remarkable area. The hike passed several other waterfalls but Multnomah was definitely the most spectacular. There is a reason Multnomah Falls is the most visited natural attraction in all of Oregon.
