     The most prominent volcanoes of the Cascade Mountains extend from British Columbia to California,
but the majority of these young statrovolcanoes occur in Oregon.  The chain of these volcanoes is almost
a straight line that parallels the Oregon coast and is due to an earlier subduction trench.

All views were obtained from Google Earth.
