    Spectacularly beautiful area! In my home state of Washington in the northwestern corner of the United States we’re pretty proud of our mountain panoramas (Olympic and Cascade ranges), but these photos show a most awesome skyline; the sunset views, and those of the clouds hiding all but the peaks were wonderful. Glad I happened onto this page – I am so impressed by the area’s magnificence. Lucky people who live there!
