This Bolivian stamp of 2006 commemorates the 400th anniversary of the founding of Oruro, an Andean town which has seen its "ups and downs" due to its focus on mining. Shown is the nearby Sajama National Park which includes the mountain Nevado Sajama. This is the highest peak in Bolivia at 6542 meters, or 21,463 feet. It is, however, only the 13th highest mountain of the Andes range.

From Wikipedia, "Nevado Sajama is an extinct volcano...it is a composite volcano consisting of a stratovolcano on top of several lava domes."

On March 15, 1966 Japan issued this quasi-national park stamp to recognize Zao National Park, which contains Mt. Zao crater.

From Wikipedia, "The central volcano of the group includes several lava domes and a tuff-cone, Goshiki-dake, which contains a crater lake named 'Okama', also known as 'Five Color Pond', because it changes color depending on the weather."

This 1998 Ishikawa Prefecture issue of Japan (Sc. #Z247) depicts Mount Hakusan, or Mount Haku, a dormant volcano which last erupted in 1659.

FRom Wikipedia, "The mountain's tallest peak, Gozengamine, is the one that gives the mountain its height of 2702 meters (8865 ft.) ...Because it is very prominent and clearly visible from the nearby coast, even after the surrounding mountains have lost their snow, Mt. Haku still appears white, which is one explanation for the mountain's name which means 'white mountain'."

Photographic image shows Mt. Hakusan from a different angle.

This $1.80, small definitive stamp of Canada (2018) depicts Mount Wilson. The close-up pic shows the bilingual microprinting running up the left side of the mountain.

From Wikipedia, "Naats'ihch'oh National Park Reserve is within the Mackenzie Mountains. The park gets its name from Naats'ihch'oh (Mount Wilson) at the north end of the park...The highest peak within the park is Naats'ihch'oh at 2245m. (7365 ft.)."
