|We rode the gondola to the Summit Restaurant and|
as we crested the hill, a glorious view of "The Mountain"
dominated the horizon. So magnificent that I couldn't
resist taking a bunch of photos.
|The river looks white because it carries glacial melt.|
Because the sky had few clouds and no haze, we were able to see all the major peaks (including, of course, the biggie -- Mount Rainier): Mount Adams, Mount Baker, Glacier Peak, and Mount St. Helens (what's left of it!)
|That's snow-covered Mount Adams on the horizon.|
It kinda looks like another cloud!
|No matter which way we looked, we faced an awe-inspiring view.|
|Even the gondola mechanism didn't spoil this view.|
|Facts and Figures: Mt Rainier=14,410 feet|
Who could ask for more?
