I was wondering what the mountain that is the backdrop of the site is. This prompted me to do some research on mountains. The great Mount Ranier of the great state of Washington absolutely pales in comparison to the monsters of the Himalayas. Here, I compare Ranier to the tallest mountain in the world and the 2 most deadly.
Everest-tallest mountain in the world
K2-second tallest mountain in the world
Annapurna 1-tenth tallest mountain in the world
Everest Death Rate-3%
K2 Death Rate-25%
Annapurna 1 Death Rate-34%
Ranier Death Rate-0.02%
And I thought Mount Ranier was deadly after I trekked through the mountain all the way to the summit and back 7 years ago.
