Are there any mountain ranges that are getting smaller?

    Yes, there are. The Appalachian Mountains along the eastern coast of the United States are significantly more sloping and less jagged than similar west coast mountain ranges. The Appalachians are older mountains, thus they have been exposed to erosive elements such as wind and water for much longer. The Appalachians we can see today are not as high as the were in their hay day.

    Actually, yes. There are mountains in the Appalachian range in the eastern United States that are subject to an extreme form of mining referred to as mountaintop removal. This mining significantly reduces the size of the mined mountains.
