Mount Baker
(stratovolcano)
Mt Baker 50 km east of Bellingham, Washington, is the northernmost of Washington's volcanoes and one of the lesser known ones in the Cascade Range.
Mt Baker Volcano has been very active during the last centuries, but has been in repose now for more than 130 years.

Glacier Peak
(stratovolcano)
Glacier Peak is a stratovolcano in northern Washington and the most remote of the Cascade volcanoes. Its name comes from the 11 glaciers on its flanks.
Although it reaches more than 10,000 feet elevation, the volcanic edifice is only 500-1000 m high, because the volcano's b... [more]

Mount Rainier
(stratovolcano)
Mount Rainier, the highest peak in the Cascade Range, is located 87 km SE of Seattle and forms a majestic backdrop to the landscape of the region. The volcano is covered by 26 main glaciers, and melting of glacial ice by a future eruption causing lahars are a significant hazard f... [more]

Goat Rocks
(stratovolcano)
Goat Rocks is the center a deeply eroded, glaciated volcanic center of a volcanic field 30 km (18 miles) north of Mount Adams, Washnington, USA. [more]

Signal Peak
(shield volcano )
Signal Peak is the eroded remnant of a small andesitic stratovolcano overlying the southern part of the basaltic shield of the Lincoln Plateau.
Together with still active Mount Adams volcano to the west and the older Simcoe volcanic field of cinder cones to the east, it is ... [more]

Mount Adams
(stratovolcano)
Mt Adams stratovolcano 50 km east of Mt St Helens volcano is the by volume second largest volcano of the Cascades Range, after Mt. Shasta.

Indian Heaven
(shield volcanoes)
Indian Heaven volcano is a volcanic field 30 km halfway between Mt St. Helens and Mount Adams volcano, Washington, USA. It contains several low overlapping basaltic shield volcanoes and more than 50 flank vents with spatter cones primarily oriented along a N-S line.
The you... [more]

West Crater
(volcanic field)
West Crater volcano is a small andesitic lava dome with lava flows in southern Washington, belonging to a volcanic field extending from Marble Mountain, north of Swift Reservoir, to south of Trout Creek Hill. The field consists mainly of small basaltic and basaltic andesite cinde... [more]
