USA Contiguous States Most Prominent Peaks

Mount Rainier from near the Sunrise Visitor Center

Mount Rainier from near the Sunrise Visitor Center

After starting my mountain climbing activities in the Cascades Range in the Pacific Northwest I became interested in exploring other mountain ranges in the western US States. This interest was initially channeled through my Western US States Highpoints project, then expanded to my California Fourteeners project and my ongoing Colorado Fourteeners project.

The Peakbagger.com website provides many ideas for exploring mountains in the western US States. In particular, its Peakbagger.com: USA Lower 48 Peaks with 4000 feet of Prominence list suggests to me many more mountains to visit. This list is much too long for me to expect to complete, but will be fun to visit selected peaks as opportunities arise.
