From atop Mary's Peak, you can see all the way from the Pacific Ocean across the Coast Range (which Mary's Peak is part of) and the Willamette Valley to the Cascades. This panorama encompasses over 180 degrees of that view- westward on the left, eastward on the right.
This is a subduction zone, where the oceanic plate is sinking beneath the continental plate. The Coast Range was driven up by the compression between these colliding plates, and the Willamette Valley represents a feature called a "forearc basin", sitting as it is immediately in front of the volcanic arc. Water released from the subducting oceanic plate causes hot rock beneath the continent to melt, bubbling up and erupting to form volcanoes.
From this vantage point, you can see the whole shebang.
