Mount Adams is seen here beyond farmlands on the east side of the Cascades. Mount Adams, known to local tribes as Pahto or Klickitat, featured prominently in tribal legends. The summit was said to have been flattened by a mighty blow from its southern brother, Mount Hood (Wyeast), when the damsel St. Helens (La-wa-la-clough) preferred Adams over Hood.
