Wrangell-St. Elias Mountain Ranges

Wiewed from 30,000 feet, the Wrangell-St.Elias mountains look like little bumps on the glaciated landscape, however when viewed from the ground they are enormous. Below is an aerial view of the two highest peaks in the range, Mount St. Elias, elevation 18,008 feet, in the foreground, and Mount Logan, elevation 19,551. Mount Logan is believed to have the largest base circumference of any non-volcanic mountain on Earth, with the massif containing eleven peaks over 16,400 ft.

Hmmm? Why don’t my pictures out of an airplane window look like that?
