The north flank of Mount Hood is cut by the Eliot Glacier, with a series of prominent glacial moraines at its base.  During the past 1800 years eruptions of Mount Hood have been restricted to vents on the SW flank, resulting in proportionately more erosional dissection of the north flank of the volcano.
