At 11,249 ft., Mount Hood stands as one of the tallest peaks in the Cascade Range. Due to its proximity to Portland, OR (about 50 miles) and the fact that it has a lower elevation than some other popular Cascade peaks like Mount Rainier (14,411 ft.) and Mount Shasta (14,179 ft.), Mt. Hood continually ranks as one of the most climbed glaciated peaks in North America. In this edition of IIAWT, we'll talk Mt. Hood, Oregon and more.
