You’ll Love These Impressive Stories About Washington Volcanoes

You’d never guess that a couple of our most gorgeous mountains are actually active volcanoes, but it’s true. We’ve got five active volcanoes in the Evergreen State: Mount Saint Helens, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, Mount Adams and Glacier Peak. Did any of those surprise you?

Mount Saint Helens’ last major eruption was in 1980, while Mount Rainier could erupt at any time (no big deal). You may not know these stories about our local volcanoes but after you read them, you just might look at our mountains a little differently.

These volcanoes might be a little nerve wracking, but they’re certainly gorgeous. Check out some scenic shots of some of Washington’s most beautiful mountain ranges.
