    Mount St. Helens, Washington, is the most active volcano in the Cascade Range. Its most recent series of eruptions began in when a large landslide and powerful explosive eruption created a large crater, and ended 6 years later after more than a dozen extrusions of lava built a dome in the crater. Lassen Peak is a dramatic highlight of the view above Boiling Springs Lake. Last week I was able to get away for a few days and knock out the majority of the trails I have left in the Cascades. I completed four trails in and around Lassen Volcanic National Park. Living at the foot of.

    Mount Shasta (Karuk: Úytaahkoo or "White Mountain") is a potentially active volcano at the southern end of the Cascade Range in Siskiyou County, an elevation of 14, feet ( m), it is the second-highest peak in the Cascades and the fifth-highest in the Shasta has an estimated volume of 85 cubic miles ( km 3), which makes it the most voluminous stratovolcano Location: Shasta–Trinity National Forest, California, U.S. The surface layer of the earth is called the crust and it makes up only 1 percent of Earth's crust is subdivided into two components: oceanic and continental crust. Again referring back to the image on the right, note that the oceanic crust is only about 3 miles thick, but is slightly more dense than continental of this oceanic rock is called basalt and is a dark, dense rock.
