The Cascade Range is known for its high volcanic peaks and open vistas. Mountains such as Hood, Je?erson, the Three Sisters, and Broken Top shine with their peaks adorned by glaciers and their pro?les distinct against blue skies. These young mountains, technically part of the High Cascades, owe their stature to eons of hard work amassed by the Old Cascades. The foundation of the Cascade Range, the Old Cascades form the base from which the High Cascades rise, with most peaks in the lower-elevation ranges of 4,000–5,000 feet.
