The Oregon Cascade mountains, Oregon

[/caption] The Central Oregon Cascade mountain range offers an amazing array of volcanic cinder cones and ancient lava flows. This photo was taken near Yapoah Crater and is looking north with views of Mt. Hood, Jefferson and 3 Fingered Jack. The silver color near 3 fingered Jack is the burn zone left by the B&B fire that destroyed much of the forest. The McKenzie Pass offers several hiking trails that will take you within this area with several opportunities to hike the summits of several volcanic cinder cones or alpine mountains.
