Thanks to David Stockton for adding this peak.
Mount McLoughlin is the highest mountain in southern Oregon. From the south, it appears to be a symmetrical, non-eroded volcanic cone, but from the north or east it is obvious that a large portion of the peak is missing. This was caused by glacial erosion from the last major ice age. McLoughlin is not well known outside of southern Oregon, but it is a dominant landmark in this area, easily seen from Medford or Klamath Falls. Mount McLoughlin is a young volcano, having been dormant for probably the last 2000 years.
