Snowy Butte

Snowy Butte

AKA Mt. McLoughlin. This sentinel of the Southern Oregon Cascades was called Snowy Butte by the early explorers and settlers of the Rogue River region in the early-1800s. The landmark is to Southern Oregon what Mt. Hood is to Portland and Mt. Shasta to Northern California. It was assigned many names over the years--Mount Pitt (after the Pit River), Big Butte, M'laiksini Yaina (Klamath Indians), Malsi (Takelma Indians), and Snowy Butte--before Mt. McLoughlin stuck.
