Cascade Mountains


The Cascade Mountains, which run from Northern California up through Washington state and into Canada, include several dramatic peaks and stunning preservation areas. Several of the mountains are active volcanoes, the most notorious of which, Mt. St. Helens, erupted dramatically in 1980. Fun fact: The Cascade Mountains were the site of the UFO sighting that gave rise to the term "flying saucers," by a pilot named Kenneth Arnold in 1947.
