Ancient Volcanos

Mount Jefferson and The Three Sisters, Cascade Range, Oregon  © Doug Hickok


As dusk settles on the Cascade Range, deep blue and pink hues envelope the peaks and valleys of Mount Jefferson (10,497 ft. elevation) and in the distance, The Three Sisters. As fate would have it, these dormant volcanos are part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc, which extends from Northern California to British Columbia, and includes the not so dormant Mount Saint Helens. 
When hiking in the remote and rugged wilderness of Mount Jefferson, beware, for The Three Sisters may have their eye on you.


This post is dedicated to LC and to Vulcan, God of Fire, who dwelt in Italy's active volcano, Mount Etna.
