Portland located in the state of Oregon is where sophisticated and alternative styles coexist peacefully. It is known as The City of Roses due to the perfect climate for grow such beautiful flowers. A temperate climate, thriving economy and close proximity to both the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains are among the many reasons Portland has garnered high rankings on multiple "Most Livable City" and "Greenest City in America" lists with green rooftops, acres of green space, bike friendly streets and mass transit . The city is also know as Beertown for its 70 brewpubs and microbreweries, as it continues to lead the world of craft beer.

Mount Hood, called Wy'east by the Multnomah tribe, is a stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon. It was formed by a subduction zone and rests in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located about 80 km east-southeast of Portland, on the border between Clackamas and Hood River counties. In addition to being Oregon's highest mountain, it is one of the loftiest mountains in the nation based on its prominence. The height assigned to Mount Hood's snow-covered peak has varied over its history. The peak is home to twelve glaciers. It is the highest point in Oregon and the fourth-highest in the Cascade Range. Mount Hood is considered the Oregon volcano most likely to erupt, though based on its history, an explosive eruption is unlikely.
