The Oregon Cascades are a wide swath of forested hills and low summits dominated by several volcanic cones towering into the sky. Mounts Hood, Jefferson, the Sisters, Thielsen, Crater Lake, McLoughlin, and a few lower, more-eroded volcanoes are so prominent that the remainder of the Oregon Cascades are almost an afterthought. Washington's North Cascades have an impressive array of high, jagged non-volcanic peaks to complement their volcanoes, but Oregon follows the pattern established in far southern Washington, where volcanoes are king and the remainder is largely logged-over foothills.
