5. Thanks so much, my dear Kath2!

Actually, my husband took it, since he had the window seat. I had asked him to take it, as I could see the mountain approaching.

He did use my camera, but he got the shot. If I'd been in the window seat, it would have been up to me to get it.

4. Wonderful photo....

but the cloud is a bit ominous. Rainer is part of the Cascade volcanic arc.

6. Thanks so much, my dear paleotn!

The cloud was just a cloud--not a volcanic cloud. The mountain hasn't erupted in modern times, I believe.

It is still active, way down deep inside.

13. Thank you so much, my dear Diamond_Dog!

It's actually pretty easy from the airplane. I've gotten some good airplane photos before, when I had the window seat!

But I agree: this is stunning.

14. Ain't it grand? Thanks for a cool photo. One of the best I've seen from the air!

I saw Rainier for the first time in 1980, and moved to the PNW in 1985. Haven't been able to leave, in part because this natural masterpiece is in my backyard.

With any luck, I'll be at MRNP snowshoeing next week!

It is absolutely my favorite mountain!

Good luck getting to snowshoe next week!

18. Wow, good for you, my dear markbark!

I'm lucky to walk from my desk to my kitchen!

The view must have been stupendous, from that summit.



And no, you were not stupid!

26. Yes, hopefully not for a LONG, LONG time....

I was being comical.

Much like when people ask me "You're in Arizona? Have you been to the Grand Canyon?"

I say, "Nah, I'll go see it when they're finished with it......"

and a beautiful mountain. Huge mountain; once in a while we can see the top from 90 miles away in Portland Oregon.

29. Thanks so much, my dear George!

I am very lucky in my husband and my camera being as good as they are.

He used to be our family photographer, but he taught me what he knew, and I took over. Now he just applauds!
