We enjoyed another amazing day at Mount Rainier. A weird temperature inversion made it nice and warm at The Mountain while it was cold and foggy in the lowlands.
There were interesting clouds and a beautiful sunset.

Playing with the camera on the way there. We'll see that cloud all day.

    Wow, as usual I absolutely love your pictures. I could look at them all day long! I'm so happy you had such a nice day [a little jealous but then again, I'm not that thrilled about snow] - thanks for sharing!

    Oh Wendy, more awesome pictures of THE MOUNTAIN! I'm so glad you post and you're out there doing it. Good for you! I had to laugh at the picture of the thermometer...56 degrees is perfect! I've thought of getting a thermometer for my pack, but I'm afraid looking at a reading over 100 degrees would only make me feel hotter.
