On A Clear Day...
What a great day for weather. Crisp (around 32 degrees when I shot this) and crystal clear. Here is the sun coming up and touching Mt. Rainier. It's a decent view from the front porch. In spite of the neighborhood trees and electric poles, I feel fortunate to be able to see the mountain whenever I look out (assuming it's clear).
On my drive down 35th to the bridge I could see all of Mt. Baker and all the peaks from there to Mt. Rainier. On the other side of the Sound I could see all of the Olympics. A great day for mountains. I walked down to Lincoln Park to stroll along the water and it was beautiful. The hike up is challenging but the views on the way down and the exposure to endless sun made it worth it.
