i wonder how the mountains in the Appalachians would compare to the mountains in the Rockies if they were just going from Base to top, not including sea level but by actual height. I think it would be more accurate than how its measured

Yea but the Appalachians dont get snow like the Rockies!! or for that matter dont even look even as AWESOME as the Rockies do!!

I have seen the Appalachians there too small for my taste, i like climbing them 13,000-14,000 peaks not 6,000 feet.. they are no where close in size Ski the Rockies!!

do you understand what i was trying to say with the sea level stuff and how tall the mountains truly are? and It depends where you saw the Appalachians. they can look huge or small depending on where you are. If you replaced the Appalachians with the rockies, they would have snow capped peaks. And snow difinently is on the appalachians!! In winter

Do these really look that small?

14,505 Feet.



Foreground: Badwater, CA. Elevation: -282 Feet
Background: Telescope Peak, Panamint Range. Elevation: 11,043 Feet


Foreground: The city of Mt. Shasta, CA. Elevation: 3,606 Feet.
Background: Shastina, Cascades (Left). Elevation: 12,330 Feet. Mt. Shasta, Cascades (Right, just barely in the picture) Elevation: 14,179 Feet.

The scary thing about the city of Mt. Shasta is that it is build directly on the flanks of a dormant volcano. The second most historically active Cascade volcano after St. Helens, Shasta is the second tallest, and most voluminous, strato-volcano of the bunch.

Of course this is partial, but I really love the Adirondacks. They are gorgeous from the tops (I love to hike them when I'm home), especially when you look down on Lake George below.

Side note, Green Mountains of Vermont were not mentioned?
