Ladd Glacier

Ladd Glacier was a large glacier located on the north side of Mt. Hood. The U.S.G.S. only mapped the lower half of Ladd as a glacier, excluding about half the upper reaches of the ice mass. The U.S.G.S.-defined Ladd is gone but the upper reaches that were physically part of the glacier still remain and are flowing as an active glacier. That said, the upper-most part of Ladd has separated from the main portion of the remaining glacier, reducing the glacier's size in its upper reaches.
