Top Ten U.S. States With Best Mountains

The Top Ten
1 Utah Utah is a state in the western United States. It became the 45th state admitted to the Union on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th-largest, the 31st-most populous, and the 10th-least-densely populated of the 50 United States.

The beauty of Utah's mountains is amplified by the fact that the population lives among them and plays in them so often that they are a central part of the culture of Utah.

About time somebody has it right.

2 Colorado Colorado is a state in the United States encompassing most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains.

Colorado is the king of the Rocky Mountains, no state can compete with Colorado not even Utah...This is the Rocky Mountains I learned at school. I see why the mountain's name is the Rocky Mountains.
When a deer crosses the street, it is beautiful for people to wait. We must learn that American national parks do not damage nature. LOVE YOU COLORADO

All you have to do is see for yourself. And see. And see. Magnificent mountains and valleys unlike anywhere else. Very unique, especially in the contrary in summer and winter and the fact no matter when you come, it will be beautiful.

3 California California is a state in the Southwestern United States. With 39.6 million residents across a total area of about 163,696 square miles (423,970 square kilometers), California is the most populous U.S. state and the third-largest by area. The state capital is Sacramento, and the largest city is Los Angeles... read more

There are so many mountains in California it's impossible to name even a fraction of them. It's also a place you can hike and climb 365 days a year. There is no better place on earth.

4 Wyoming Wyoming is a state in the mountain region of the Western United States. The state is the tenth largest by area, but the least populous and the second least densely populated of the 50 United States.

Wyoming has some of the most beautiful mountains in the US and should be ranked #1. I love Wyoming. It has high, snow-capped peaks, over 64 of them above 13,000 feet, making it second-highest in terms of average elevation. Our state should be #1 in terms of the best economy and beauty - we should excel in everything. If you love this state more than me (which is impossible), feel free to comment. You should also know that our antelope population is really high, as well as elk, deer, moose, and other wildlife. If you love hunting, come to Wyoming. We are #1, but we don't want too many people to come here... Watch out for the weather, as it can get nasty, but we love that too. Just the thought of the high plateau is invigorating. Yellowstone is so gorgeous that you'll be inspired to move here.

5 Montana Montana is a state in the Western region of the United States. The state's name is derived from the Spanish word montaƱa.

How are the mountains of Colorado, Utah, Idaho, California, and Wyoming more beautiful than the mountains of Montana? I mean seriously: Google images of "glacier national park" and you'll see what I mean. Google images of "rocky mountain national park" in Colorado, and it pales in comparison.

Google pictures of "Bozeman, Montana and Boulder pales in comparison

6 Idaho Idaho is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. Idaho is the 14th largest, the 39th most populous, and the 7th least densely populated of the 50 United States.
7 Washington Washington is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States located north of Oregon, west of Idaho, and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is the only state named after a president.

The cascades have 5 huge glacier covered volcanoes, while having some of the most jagged peaks in the U S in the northern portion. Also has the Olympics which are a young but growing range and they look like a huge wall coming out of the water from the Puget/Possession Sound.

The Cascades are absolutely stunning, and a small taste of the massive Canadian Rockies. Plus Mt. Baker boasts the world's snowfall record, at 95 feet in one season. Mt. Ranier is also simply majestic.

8 Oregon Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Oregon is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by Washington, on the south by California, on the east by Idaho, and on the southeast by Nevada.
9 Alaska Alaska is a U.S. state situated in the northwest extremity of the Americas. The Canadian administrative divisions of British Columbia and Yukon border the state to the east; it has a maritime border with Russia to the west across the Bering Strait.

West Virginia is higher on the list than Alaska - seriously? I lived in Alaska and have been in the other 49 states. There are spectacular mountains in many states, but Alaska is at the top of my list.

Alaska by far has the best mountains! It's the most beautiful state in the entire U.S!

The mountains around here are so beautiful. Alaska should be number one.

10 Nevada Nevada is a state in the Western, Mountain West, and Southwestern regions of the United States of America.

I love seeing the mountains near Vegas!

12 Vermont
13 Arizona Arizona is a U.S. state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states.

How the heck is Florida on this list? That place is a sinking, flat hellhole and it's about to flooded for good

24 New Hampshire

Christ, how is this state not on the top ten let alone not on this list. I honestly find this very asinine that freaking Florida and Mississippi (Not even 1,000 feet high NOT even mountains just HILLS) are on this list.

This state is home to the freaking White Mountains with Mt. Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Monroe, Madison, Lafayette, Lincoln, etc; that are epic!

25 Massachusetts Massachusetts, officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England part of the northeastern region of the United States.
