Mount Adams Summit
View from the summit of Mount Adams (12,276 feet/3,742 meters) in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. Mount Adams is a stratovolcano meaning its cone is composed of both lava and ash. Many other volcanos in the Cascades are similar. This view is in a southerly direction. The dark ridge and snowfield below is the false summit when you climb the mountain from the south. Although it doesn't show in this photo, I recall the dark ridge on the false summit looking like coffee grounds.
