I remember Harvey Manning mentioning seeing a photo of a certain Washington peak on a travel brochure for the alps. I was perusing through Prime Video and saw the same mountain in the Colorado episode for State to State. Anyone recognize it?

Life is too short to take too seriously.

Being afraid of dying is not synonymous with being afraid of not living. The former is so occupied with avoiding death that he never truly lives. The later would rather risk death in the hope of truly living.

I saw t-shirts in a gift shop in Rocky Mountain NP that also were "borrowing" Mt. Shuksan.  Dammit Colorado, it's not like there are no mountain in your own state to use!

Canít remember where I read this, but I read somewhere that it is the most photographed mountain in the world. Iím not sure if I believe that (seen the Matterhorn quite a few times and digital photography is probably a game changer as well) it probably is way up there.

Several years ago I spent one night in Bangkok. This was on the wall in our hotel room:

Many years ago I saw a huge photo (from Picture Lk) covering a whole wall in the train station in Lima. Not like there aren't any mtns in Peru.

Here are three examples:

I bought a book, "Canoeing in British Columbia", the cover photo was of a canoe on picture lake.

Friends traveling to South America (I think Peru) saw a trash can with a Don't Litter sign that used a photo of Mt Shuksan.

About 25 years ago my wife and I tried to take a seasonal family photo of ourselves at Picture Lake.  It was not a success, but then we noticed that at a coffee shop in Flagstaff Az there was a wall mural that we could use to get a much better version of the same background.

Here's a t-shirt I bought in Aspen Colorado.  It's another shot of Mt. Shuksan.  You'd think they could find a nice mountain in Colorado for the t-shirt like the nearby Maroon Bells.

I have to agree.

Im going to have to rewatch the deer hunter. Pennsylvania's mountains rival Washington. I don't recall if they have a shuksanesque mountain.

Can you name this movie?

They are definitely up on the north side of Mt. Baker for some of the filming.  Can't remember if they have a shot of Shuksan in there or not.
