Top Ten U.S. States With Best Mountains


The Top Ten

1 Utah 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. - ignoble

2 Colorado 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.

It's got 53 14's

3 Wyoming 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.

4 California California

Sierra nevada mountains; yosemite; and many more. why THE HECK IS CALIFRONIA 4TH PLACE?

Sierra Nevadas are the best on earth!

5 Idaho 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.
6 Montana 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.

Listen here bud wyoming has way bigger mountains and at least we ain't inbred - wyomingrancher

Perfect ranges

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.

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.

8 Oregon 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.
