Washington State, USA.
Mt. Rainier, maybe the finest example of a mountain in the lower 48 states. Definitely one of my favorite National Parks, as well as one of the most dramatic, in my opinion. This is not a “mountain range” more than it is just a “mountain” within a smaller range that includes the likes of Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens. The “snowiest” place in the USA, Paradise Valley Lodge can be seen in the lower right of the picture here, at three stories tall, giving a nice sense of perspective to the size of Mt.Rainier from a close distance. Above the clouds, topped with glaciers, surrounded by flower filled meadows, this one is special. Add in a myriad of animal life and place it within an easy drive from a major city, Seattle, and this park is one of the best America has to offer.
…to put another bit of perspective to the size of Mt. Rainier, below is a picture taken at around a hundred miles away, from the center of Seattle:
