Mt. Rainier, more than 14,000 feet tall, and Mt. Adams, at more than 12,000 feet, are the two highest mountains in the state of Washington. They're so tall that they make the Goat Rocks range and Mt. St. Helens look small, even though both of those are more than 8000 feet high themselves!
This aerial photograph from 3 miles up (just a little higher than Mt. Rainier) shows, from left to right:
- the Goat Rocks Wilderness, containing Gilbert Peak, Ives Peak, and Old Snowy Mountain;
- Mount Adams;
- Mount Rainier;
- and Mount Saint Helens.
