Text from sign: “Stretching from California to Canada, the Cascade Range is part of a much greater realm of volcanoes and mountains around the Pacific Ocean known as the Ring of Fire. About 80% of the world’s large earthquakes occur along this seismic region. When combined with the potential for volcanic eruptions, scientists pay close attention to this area with the hope of warning us of potential dangers.”

Phil Brogan (1896-1983) worked for the local Bend paper, The Bulletin, for 44 years as the science reporter. He also served as the president of the Oregon Geographic Names Board for more than 20 years. Prior to the development of this viewpoint (about 1985) there was a boardwalk trail (established prior to 1972) along the base of the butte that was named the Phil Brogan Trail.
