The state of Oregon is located on the west coast of the USA on the Pacific Ocean. It belongs to the western region. Two mountain ranges run north-south through Oregon. Namely the Cascade Range and the Oregon Coast Range. They include the Willamette
Valley. This is a valley that is considered one of the most fertile agricultural areas in the world. The state capital of Oregon is Salem, which has a population of 167,000. The largest city in the state is Portland with a population of 640,000. The highest mountain in the Cascade Range and in the entire state is Mount Hood at 3,425 meters. Mount Hood, like the other mountains in the Cascade Range, is a volcano. The Cascade chain is about 1,100 kilometers long and stretches from the state of California to Canada. The volcanoes of the Cascade Range are among the most potentially dangerous volcanoes in the world because they are large, active and located in comparatively populated areas of the states of Oregon and Washington and the Canadian province of British Columbia. One of the volcanoes in neighboring Washington state, Mount St. Helens, erupted in 1980. The volcanic eruption is among the most powerful of the 20th century and one of the best-studied given its location in a relatively accessible area of ​​the state and the US having ample research funds compared to other nations.
