Mt. Hood National Quarter

Throughout 2010, First National Bank has been receiving special quarters from the America The Beautiful Quarters Program.  The fifth quarter, The Mount Hood National Forest Quarter, was just released.  It is available at all First National Bank locations.

Located 20 miles east of Portland, Oregon, which lies in the northern part of the Willamette River Valley, Mount Hood National Forest extends south from the strikingly beautiful Columbia River Gorge across more than 60 miles of forested mountains, lakes and streams, to the Olallie Scenic Area.  The forest encompasses more than one million acres.  Two of its many highlights are the Timberline Lodge, a national historic landmark in its own right, and the Clackamas Wild and Scenic River.  Mount Hood was first established as a national site on September 28, 1893.

In 2010, the United States Mint began to issue 56 quarter-dollar coins featuring designs depicting national parks and other national sites as part of the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. Here are all of the quarters released in 2010:

• Hot Springs National Park, AR
• Yellowstone National Park, WY
• Yosemite National Park, CA
• Grand Canyon National Park, AZ
• Mt. Hood National Forest, OR

2011 marks the second year of the program and features the next 5 quarters:

• Gettysburg National Military Park, PA
• Glacier National Park, MT
• Olympic National Park, WA
• Vicksburg National Military Park, MS
