In far south-central China, Jade Dragon Snow Peak is one of the earth's more scenic mountains. The 18,200' peak forms a lovely backdrop to Black Dragon Pool Park, seen here, in the city of Lijiang, in China's Yunnan Province. The peak's lower flanks actually can be accessed by a ski lift, but the mountain's summit is guarded by avalanche-prone snowfields, icefalls and serac barriers. Photo by Jim Pearre.
