Although less familiar to many people due to its remote location, Mount Adams, at 12,276, is actually higher than the more famous mounts Baker, St Helens, and Hood, and is the second highest peak in the Cascade range. It lies some thirty miles east of Mount St Helens and thirty miles north of the Columbia River. The peak marks the western extremity of the Yakima Indian Reservation. The surrounding area forms the Mount Adams Wilderness. Mount Adams is one of five volcanos in Washington's Washington's Cascade Mountains.
