Elevation



At 11,235 ft, Mt Hood is Oregon's highest peak. In this photo, you can see the beginnings of the famous cloud cap that forms over its summit, also known as Hood's Hood. The meadow in the foreground is Summit Meadow, and was home to many pioneers making their way west. It became a tollgate from 1866-1870.
