Mt. Rainier, B0204
Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington
An intense blue sky with only a few clouds forms a heavenly backdrop for Washington's Mount Rainier. The mountain is usually enshrouded by a cloud of its own making. With temperatures in the 60's, the glaciers melt and move, making deep crevasses. Below the cloud and tree line, hummingbirds are flitting among flowers that are beginning to bloom, and the wind blows through the pines creating a melody to accompany the songbirds and insects. Along the trail at the Glacier Overlook, it seems as though one could reach out and touch the majesty of Mount Rainier.
