Mt. Hood National Forest - Summer 2007

Mt. Hood National Forest - Crater Rock

USA | Thursday, 16 August 2007 | 64 photos

Crater is a lava dome at the top of Mt. Hood. It took us about 4 hours to hike up to it. The area is really neat because we were at 10,200 feet elevation. We were also by a fumarole which is a vent in the mountain which releases carbon dioxide and sulfur. The fumaroles produce a neon yellow color. This area is the highest elevation I have hiked to.
