View of Mt. Rainier in midsummer, from the International Space Station. The 14,411 foot, active volcano is a familiar sight on the Western Washington horizon on clear summer days, its glaciers gleaming in the sunlight (photo credit: NASA).
Deja view: these photos were taken about six years apart, hiking Mount Rainier National Park with my son. At least the mountain will never change (unless it erupts again).
Above pic was taken this past Saturday, at Glacier Basin, on the northwest side of Rainier. Below pic was taken almost exactly six years previous, at Panorama Point, on the southwest side of Rainier.
