Known as ‘The Mountain’, this imposing stratovolcano is located 59 miles south-southeast of Seattle. With an elevation of 14,411 feet it can easily be seen from everywhere within a hundred miles when the clouds lift from covering it up. It is part of the Cascade Range and the highest mountain in Washington. It is one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, due in part to its massive amount of glacial ice which would produce destructive mudflows if it were to erupt.
