The description states:
Hood River Valley is known the world over for its apples. Excellent crops of pears and strawberries are adding to the valley’s fame as a fruit growing center.
— The volcano is considered to have a very low risk of eruption, and is generally described as dormant. The Hood River is comprised of 3 forks which merge before joining the Columbia River.
