Ah, Mt. Rainier, the mountain that has helped define the Puget Sound region. Big, and beautiful, a beacon of the regions geologic past and of its natural beauty and a wonderful place to visit where you can go to challenge and recharge both your soul and your body.
At just over 14,000 feet in height it is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, which just maybe perhaps some day will pop its top and rain down enormous chaos. A fact that adds to what attracts people to the peak.
Locally Mt. Rainier, or Mt Tahoma, is known as The Mountain. When it is visible we like to say The Mountain is out, but besides is size and location it is often elusive and invisible, shrouded by clouds, haze or just the gray of the northwest. It is not uncommon to visit Seattle in the winter and not even know Rainier is there.
Rainier is as impressive up close, standing on its slopes, as it is from afar. To help capture that I have posted 20 of my photos of Mt Rainier in my newest photo collection which you can see here. Enjoy, and then find the time to visit The Mountain, it is always worth the trip.
Wild Flowers! This year, due to the mild wet spring the wild flowers started strong, but the long dry hot streak of summer weather kept the season short. However, I still managed to get some great photos, which will be up next, so check back.
