who agrees with me?

is that a giant mountain range or just a few really really big mountains ?



First of all thanks for the nice photos, especially those of Mt. Hood.

Here is a quote from Wiki about this Mountain range:



The Cascade Range is a major mountain range of western North America, extending from southern British Columbia through Washington and Oregon to Northern California. It includes both non-volcanic mountains, such as the North Cascades, and the notable volcanoes known as the High Cascades. The small part of the range in British Columbia is called the Canadian Cascades or Cascade Mountains; the latter term is also sometimes used by Washington residents to refer to the Washington section of the Cascades in addition to North Cascades, the more usual American term, as in North Cascades National Park.

The Cascades are part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, the ring of volcanoes and associated mountains around the Pacific Ocean. All of the known historic eruptions in the contiguous United States have been from Cascade volcanoes. The two most recent were Lassen Peak in 1914 to 1921 and a major eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980. Minor eruptions of Mount St. Helens have also occurred, most recently in 2006

ok ok

but.. honestly speaking.. the mountain ranges in Utah and other parts of the Rockies are a continuous row of giant mountains and its difficult to climb over any one of them

thats what i call a mountain range

though the cascades do offer many great mountain experiences throughout them, great camping grounds, fishing, loads of trails and good hunting.

just not exactly what i think of as a mountain range, having grown up in Utah and Hawaii, and Hawaii has vast walls of mountin ranges that go on for miles and miles, that are practically vertical
