This is Mt. Baker in Washington State, U.S.A.,as photographed from my kitchen window in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada, on March 9th, 2010.
It is the second-most active volcano in the North Cascade range after Mount Saint Helens. Mount Baker is the youngest volcano in the Mount Baker volcanic field. Last major eruption was in 1880. It is located just 15 miles south the the Canada/US border, near Bellingham, Washington. Elevation is 10,781 feet. it is visible from much of Greater Victoria, Greater Vancouver, and, to the south, from Seattle (and on clear days Tacoma) in Washington. The volume of snow and ice on Mount Baker, 0.43 cu mi (1.79 km3) is greater than that of all the other Cascades volcanoes (except Rainier) combined. It is also one of the snowiest places in the world; in 1999, Mount Baker Ski Area, located 14 km (8.7 mi) to the northeast, set the world record for recorded snowfall in a single season—1,140 in (2,900 cm). In winter my view of this mountain is one of a BIG VANILLA ICE CREAM CONE!!
