Location: Cascade Range, Mount Jefferson Wilderness, Oregon, USA
Mount Jefferson is the second highest peak in Oregon, after Mount Hood. It is considered to be one of the most challenging mountains of the Cascades due to its icy summit pinnacle. On March 30, 1806, Clark, of the Lewis and Clark Expedition entered the name “Mount Jefferson” in his journal, thereby naming this peak after President Thomas Jefferson, founder of the expedition. The first ascent was made August 12, 1888 by Ray L. Farmer and E.C. Cross.
