Description: Mount Baker (elevation 10,778 feet, 3,285 m) is a glaciated andesitic stratovolcano in the Cascades of Washington State in the United States about 30 miles (50km) due east of the city of Bellingham, Whatcom County. It is also easily visible from much of Greater Victoria, Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley just across the Canadian border to the north, and especially from the communities of Mission and Abbotsford, both about 45 kilometres (28 miles) east of Vancouver, BC—as well as from some locations in Everett and even Seattle to the southwest. The mountain is named for Lieutenant Joseph Baker III of the Royal Navy aboard HMS Discovery, who sighted the mountain on April 30, 1792.

After Mount Rainier, Baker is the most heavily glaciated of the Cascade volcanoes: the volume of snow and ice on Mount Baker (0.43 cubic miles, 1.8 cubic kilometers) is greater than that of all the other Cascades volcanoes (except Rainier) combined. It is also one of the snowiest places in the world: in 1999, Mount Baker set the world record for snowfall in a single season. (1140 inches/95 feet/2896 cm)
