I grew up on the East Coast, but when I first when out west I was floored by the views of mountains.

There was recently a thread about mountain prominence vs relative relief. Anyone have any?

How about some mountains in Minnesota? They aren't as tall or snowcapped but I still find them to be cool.

Mount Josephine, Cook County

Carlton Peak (sunrise)

Some of the Sawtooth Mts. along Lake Superior.

So yes, not quite big mountains, but I think they are worthy of this thread.
