UP ON THE MOUNT








Adventured with friends to Mt. Rainier last weekend.  This looming icon of Washington has captivated me since moving to the Pacific Northwest; on lucky beautiful days, you can see it along the horizon from almost anywhere in Seattle.  It's awe-inspiring almost 50 miles away and simply breathtaking up close.  We voyaged on a gorgeous 80 degree day and no, didn't hike all 14,411 feet, but enjoyed musings along a trail near the base in the sunlight (then kicking back with, what else, Rainiers and red wine afterward of course).  Blissful.
