Seven mountain peaks you must admire in Washington state
SHARON WOOTTON—Everett Herald

From a distance, the mountains of the Cascade and the Olympic ranges look formidable and inaccessible. The jagged peaks have been compared to bared teeth, spikes and a picket fence.

At higher elevations, they’re dotted with glaciers and streaked with avalanche runs. The Cascades’ volcanoes are dormant or quiet, but every now and then a puff of steam from Mount Baker or Mount St. Helens reminds us of the possibilities.

Take advantage of the last weeks of summer and visit or admire a mountain before the snow flies.
