1. Local hills and mountains
2. Knife edge of Katahdin - settling the score
3. Ben Nevis via CMD Arete - settling the score
4. Any mountain in the Alps
5. Mt. Whitney

I guess this isn't a very ambitious list.

Mt Sherman is an easy hike from FMC. You could probably do Sherman and Quandry in the same day. Dont bother with the Decalibron loop, its boring, unless you want to say you bagged 4 14ers in a day. IMO
One of the best early morning views is from Horseshoe Mtn that is right by Sherman. You can litterally photograph 15 or more of the 14ers on a clear morning from there.

I'll never have the time nor money for the exotic climbs so I have to keep it in my backyard:

Mount Olympus
Mount Stuart via the Sherpa Glacier
Little Tahoma
Glacier Peak
Baring Mountain
Mount Baker

I think Decalibron is a real challenge (if you try to do it in 2 hours) I actually haven't done it, but I did do Democrat in a little under an hour and a half. It took a while since I had a sick kid with me for the first 45 minutes.

It doesn't have to be, all those climbs/hikes are great.

I tried to make a list once...

It's impossible, there's too many mountains and not enough time, and I'm only 15!
