Mount Adams towers over the South Cascades. The big strato-volcano rises out of a jumble of lava beds, which make cross-country travel difficult along the flanks of the big mountain. But those same lava flows add a wonderful scenic element to trail hiking. Snow-capped Mount Adams fills the horizon, but at its feet is a world of jagged black rock that slashes at the boots and hands of any adventurer careless enough to scramble off-trail.
