OREGON FIELD GUIDE

Mt. Hood's Volcanic Past

  • Aired: 10/25/2012
  • 08:20
  • Rating: TV-G
As George Washington was winning the revolutionary war, a deluge of volcanic debris was killing trees on the Sandy River. Mount Hood erupted for nearly a decade, just a few years before Lewis & Clark came through. The mountain many Portlanders regard as part of the city skyline is actually an active volcano with a more recent history of activity than many people realize.
