As long as I can remember, when I step outside of my Washington home, I have looked to see if "the mountain" is out and showing itself off. This winter day it was spectacular, so I headed to the mountain, to Paradise, where some of the most beautiful photos of Mt Rainier can be taken. I know the mountain creates its own weather, and this day was no exception. As I pulled closer to Paradise, the fog was rolling in, and I was disappointed . I sat watching, willing it to blow away, but as I watched my mountain began to take on an ethereal appearance that was beautiful. I'm so glad I drove to the mountain this day, and I now present to you one of my favorite photos of Mt Rainier. I hope you enjoy it too.
