Mt Rainier

All photos July 25, 2013 ...

Looking for breakfast
Sorry for saving the post title for last, but it was a beautiful summer day in the Northwest and it just seemed fitting to share a few photos taken earlier on July 25.  Later, in the afternoon, John couldn't resist another trip up to 73 to see how Mt Rainier was fairing in the clear skies.

If you have about 4 minutes and you're interested in Mount Rainier history, take a look at my video posted back in 2008 and see the brochure about Mt Rainier National Park published in 1916.

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.

  2. That last picture is breathtaking.This one needs to be enlarged and displayed on a wall.
