View from Harney Peak in January. Harney Peak is South Dakota's highest point and the highest point east of the Rocky Mountains. Mount Rushmore is slightly visible in the 2nd photo in the right hand lower corner.

Danny,

Nice pictures, but I think Guadalupe Peak in Texas is the highest point east of the Rocky Mountains.

Probably splitting hairs, but Guadalupe Peak is in far west Texas (just below the south central portion of New Mexico) and if you go directly north in a longitudal line there is probably some portion of the rockies that extend further east. But if you consider Texas to be a state east of the rockies (and 90% of it is), than Guadalupe Peak would be the highest point.

I've been to Mt. Rainer in Washington State and we've driven through a lot of the mountains in North Carolina. We're planning a trip to Switzerland in December. Our plan is to take the Glacier Express train through the mountains to the town of Zermatt, which is at the base of the Matterhorn.

That is an awesome pic I have been meaning to visit, it is at Mt. Mitchell though isn't it? I live in Colorado we have several 14,000 footers that you should visit. I am moving to E. Tennessee next year to live near the Smokeys, I always been a mountainman but I've always been a Southerner at heart first and foremost.

I have been to the top of Pikes Peak once. Great view you guys got down there. If I move to Fort Collins I plan to do Longs Peak at least once!

Mt Rushmore it the big formation of rocks in the center of your picture with the flat top, not lower rt corner. I lived in Custer and my parents use to work there at the fire lookout back in the 60s.
