Many  communities are very proud of their local mountains, but some mountains have obtained very important world renown status either because of the size, shape, or location. We find many spoons with mountains engraved on them, thus I am presenting just a few of the common ones.

The 'rat' is one of the smaller mountains --but I don't see it

In spoon collecting, we find many spoons from the Pikes Peak area of Colorado which was a very popular tourist destination.
