Mount Rainier, Washington
An active volcano, Mount Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous U.S.A., spawning five major rivers. At a height of 14,410 feet, Mount Rainier is the highest volcanic peak in the contiguous United States. Because of the unpredictable weather climate in the state of washington, you hardly get to see the mountain in all of its glory, but on those couple of clear days when you get to see the mountain, you realize the sheer beauty of it. I have been eyeing to catch this beauty ever since I have moved to PNW - few failed drives where weather was not in my favor, but this one was totally worth it.
