Views of the Pacific Northwest Peaks as well as of Utah and Colorado

Here is a view of some peaks we saw while flying eastbound on climb out from Portland, Oregon through about 21,000 feet.  From left to right the peaks are: Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, and the Three Sisters.  

In this video we were arriving west into Portland and passing north of Mount Hood descending through 12,000 feet.  It was obscured by clouds and then it appeared.  In the video I mistakenly called it Mount Rainier. 

Also this week I had some good views of Colorado and Utah.  

 This is the Wasatch front looking south from 37,000 feet.
 This was taken just a few minutes later showing Kamas, Jordanelle Reservoir, Heber Valley, Provo Canyon, and behind it Utah Valley.
 This is Crested Butte in Colorado.
 This is a sunset while flying into Denver International.
 Another view of the sunset over Denver.
 The Colorado Rockies.
