Mt. McKinley is more of NYC. NYC is taller/more high-rises than Tokyo. Mt. Everest is Hong Kong.

I'm not trying to turn anyone away from Houston. I could care less how many people live here and love it. I didn't use the word hate, but since you brought it up, yea I do hate living here. Maybe you should put me on your ignore list

YES! And the road is more narrow and the drop off is much further. The scenery is beautiful but is very scary, if you're not used to that.

Both mountains are extremely beautiful in their own way. This question is like asking me what kind of burger is my favorite, Steak 'n Shake or White Castle? How do I pick?

When did someone ask about Houston? Must have missed it.

the North Carolina Mountains are big, but the Rockies make them look puny...NO COMPARISON. Plus the Rockies get a LOT more snow.

In the interest of helping with the comparison , here are some pictures of the Colorado Rockies.









Now someone post up images of the Carolina mountains. Would love to see some fall pictures of the Appalachians.

I dont think anyone will post NC mountain pics after seeing those beauties! LOL That would be like bringing a Corvette, which is nice and all, to a Ferrari party.
