My family just got back from trip to WY & MT. Dillon, MT has views of 5 mountain ranges.

That got us thinking, what other towns boast views of 4 or more mountain ranges? Thanks!

You're comparing cities - this belongs in the city vs city room.

I don't know about 5, but Seattle has views of the Olymics, the Cascades, and Mt. Ranier. Los Angeles has a few of quite a few ranges, especially if you count the Hollywood Hills as one range.

Five ranges are rare. Where in Montana are you referring to? (Three at the most in any one location has been my experience).

Seattle has the Cascades and Olympics, (that's two, obviously), but I can't think of many metro areas that have more than that, unless you are considering very minor ranges.

I don't know how many ranges you can see at any one time, but Los Angeles has the Santa Monica Mountains, San Gabriel Mountains, Santa Ynez Mountains, and the Sierra Pelona Mountains.

Neat thread idea...I love mountains. I can't think of any that have six, but from Redding (or any northern valley town), CA, you should be able to see five: California Coast Ranges, Klamath Range (Trinity Alps), The Sierra Nevada, The Cascades, and the Sutter Buttes. Those are all fairly major mountain ranges, with the obvious exception of the Sutter Buttes.

I didn't think about LA. And now I have to go look up where Redding is - never heard of it.

pw72 - it was Dillon, MT

Thanks for the replies!

Of course not. No one ever thinks about L.A. when it comes to discussions of natural beauty, because the ridiculous stereo-type of a concrete jungle conjures up images of exactly that. Los Angeles is one of the most beautiful cities in the country and most people will never experience or admit it.

That's my rant. Just wanted to get that off my chest.
