Those are hills... not mountains.

This is a mountain. :LOL: Mt. Rainier... 14,410 ft.

Seriously though... enjoy the ride. The twisties sure are fun... I gotta take the new Challenger up in the Cascades before winter.

Cruising the mountain roads in the Challenger is great.
Yeah that's one thing that will never get old when it comes to living in the Pacific Northwest... the views of Mt. Rainier and all the other Cascade volcanoes.

This is from 60 miles away and the drive there is great... and the first post in my old red Challenger is the highest paved road in the state I believe.

Until one blows up lol. Seriously, awesome picture. Did you take it? Looks only 10 miles away.
Can't be worried about that. :ROFLMAO: It only happens every couple hundred years... (see Mt. St.Helens 1980) Rainier is overdue but with all the geological monitoring there would be plenty of warning. St. Helens went active in March and didn't blow up till May.

I didn't take that pic... but I did take these...

Rainier... on a clear day you can't miss it. This is 60 miles away.

Adams on the left... St. Helens on the right. St. Helens is missing the top 3000 ft when she literally blew her top off in 1980. I like to tell people that Rainier is a good "before" example with all the trees and life around it... St Helens is the "after" because if you go there it looks like the surface of the moon and trees and other life are just now making a comeback 40 years later.

St. Helens today ( I didn't take these) The forest surrounding the mountain was leveled and buried by the landslide. What you see floating in the lake in the 2nd pic are trees that were uprooted and tossed like toothpicks and are still floating in the lake 40 years later.

If you like the outdoors the Pacific Northwest is a good spot to add to the bucket list if you've never been here. Lots to see and do. I don't really miss the east coast as far as outdoor stuff is concerned. (y)

Here's what the parking lot looks like with about 200 fine Mopars parked up there!
Yeah man... Mt. St. Helens is about 3 hours south but the drive out there is so worth it. Just some of the best twisties ever once you get off I-5 and start the drive out into the wilderness. When I first moved here in 2011 I took a helicopter tour and went inside the crater... it ranks right up there with the helicopter tour I did over the Grand Canyon last year. Just amazing.

I haven't been out there in 3-4 years but I may very well go in October in the new Scat once the fall colors are out.

Looks like a road trip destination!
I'll definitely post some pics... Rainier is a lot closer but both drives are worth it.
