||Mount Rainier is the highest volcano
in the Cascade Province and the second highest peak in the lower 48 states
at an elevation of 14,410 feet. The 26 named and numerous smaller unnamed
glaciers occupy over 36 square miles and form the largest glacier
system in the conterminous United States. Excellent views of the Nisqually
Glacier are available from trails starting at the Paradise visitor center.
