Named for our third President, one of our country’s founding fathers, by the Lewis & Clark Discovery Expedition. Thomas Jefferson was a true statesman and a champion of individual rights. Thomas Jefferson believed we, as a country, needed a well-informed electorate as a prerequisite to democracy. This still stands true today, just like the mountain that bears his name.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Jefferson_(Oregon)http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/mount_jeffersonhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Jeffersonhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_and_Clark_Expedition     IMG_20131006_074009_561IMG_20131006_074009_561-ss2IMG_1233
