Mt. Baker is ~70 miles away from that shot, in the state of Washington.

Where I grey up it was about 40 miles away, but our house had an amazing view of it. I looked at it every morning while eating breakfast!

Love that! Though to be fair it's a telephoto.

I'm 50 miles from Mt. Rainier, which 14,410' vs. Baker's 10,781', and it looks far smaller.

Even Tacoma, just 30 miles from Mt. Rainier, has a less dominant view than that. Still impressive as hell though.

Vancouver's real backdrop is the lesser mountains to the north, which dominate because they're so close.

Compression is an amazing thing.

It’s obviously telephoto but I grew up 40 miles from Mt. Baker and its presence was not insignificant, it dominated the south east view from our front windows.

I believe it. I’m in Portland and Mt. Hood pops out pretty prominently when traveling east on any slight hill, and it’s only a bit higher than 11,000 feet but it’s 50 miles out.
