Washington’s mountain gem is Mount Rainier. It is a massive 14,411 foot volcano visible from Seattle, and many other Washington cities, on a clear day. What makes it especially spectacular is that it towers over the rest of the Cascades range, so much so, that sometimes it just looks like a huge lone mountain.
I enjoyed seeing Mt. Rainier in its many forms during my week stay in Seattle. When I left I quickly forgot it. And then, a few days ago biking highway 101 from Hoodsport to Shelton, all the sudden there it was on the horizon–a beast of a snow-topped mountain. I got out my camera to take a picture of it, as I had many times in Seattle, with the same result–on my camera I see no mountain.
Maybe my camera isn’t that great, but it’s not that bad either. Just proof, I suppose, that cameras can’t get everything.
