Mt. Adams, Washington Sunday, January 14, 2007

Mt. Adams, viewed from a Hood River orchard on Jan. 13, 2007.

About halfway between Mount Rainier and Mount Hood, and 60 miles east of Mount St. Helens, Mount Adams looms over the Columbia River Gorge near Hood River, Ore. At 12,277 feet (3,742 m) high, it is the second highest mountain in the Cascade Range (after Rainier).

Like its sisters, Adams is volcanic. Although it is not currently active, it is considered dormant, not extinct. Its last eruption was around 3000 years ago.
