view of Mount Hood from the West Summit of Lookout Mountain.
In this view, the massive Newton-Clark Glacier dominates most
of the east face of the mountain. The spectacular upper icefall
of the Eliot Glacier is visible along the right shoulder of the
peak, just below the summit.
dark streak of rock extending from directly below the summit,
across the broad Newton-Clark Glacier, had just occurred when
this photo was taken in August 2001, and represented one of the
largest rock avalanches on Mount Hood in decades. The 6,000 foot-long
slide is composed of huge quantities of rock, and the glacier
was reported to be littered with house-sized boulders that fell
from the summit cliffs.
