Sightings: Eagle and Mt Rainier - August 10

That's the best capture yet of the eagle. He's in the same tree and same spot as spotted on two previous occasions.  Keep in mind this is a pocket point and shoot camera (Sony RX100). The 1" sensor allows some nice enlargements.  I'm almost ready to bring the "really good" camera with a long lens, but that will have to be after the walk is done, as that is too much to carry 3 miles around the Lake.

Now, I'm sure Mount Rainier has been visible on one or more of my previous 19 trips around the Lake, but this morning was the first time to see it. Quite a sight popping up over the horizon ... and, according to Google Earth, about 63 miles from Green Lake ...

And, I really liked the sun rising through the trees across the Lake ...
