This peak has the distinction of being the closet major summit to the center of the triangle formed by Mounts Rainier, Adams, and Saint Helens. The summit of Tongue Mountain is just a little over two miles from the exact geographic center of the triangle. On a clear day, and assuming brush does not block any summit views, this would be the best place to see all three volcanoes.
