Photo Friday: Mount Rainier Photo

by Don Faust on October 14, 2011

Mount Rainier, an active volcano, stands at 14,411 feet and on a clear day, dominates the landscape southeast of Seattle, WA.

Mount Rainier Photo

Today’s Photo Friday (#FriFotos on Twitter) theme is ONE.  Pictured above is Washington State’s big ONE, Mount Rainer.  Chris and I went hiking here about a month ago, and the scenery was breathtaking.  On a clear day, you can see the mountain dominating the horizon southeast of Seattle.  It’s so huge and imposing, it looks deceivingly close to Seattle, yet it’s a good two hour drive away.

You know, Don and I have never gone snowboarding! We should try it one of these days.

I especially love that you’ve captured the American flag with the mountain. Photos of Mount Rainier rarely, if ever, turn out bad. Love hiking here, particularly in the late afternoon, when the chance for some sunlight is best.
