Every So Often…


Every so often, Mount Ranier shows it’s face; and on a rare occasion, it is completely exposed for our enjoyment. Reportedly about 120 days a year are sunny in Seattle and about 90 days a year Ranier is visible. When I took my parents-in-law to visit in August about 6 of 9 days gave us views like this. This was shot from a cruise on Elliott Bay with the Port of Seattle in the foreground and nothing but Ranier in all its glory in the background. Note the tremendous glaciers and snow pack in August, which are at all time record levels.Mount Ranier

    The in-laws loved Seattle very much and they think Japanese people should reconsider their image of America as ‘dangerous’. They do have a distorted view because the weather was amazing. Next I want them to travel during the Spring when there are so many gray and misty days. If they can focus on the beautiful flowers and fresh air, then we will know they are ready to love the NW.

    @Stef – yes, gorgeous; however, my sister sent me a link to her more beautiful photo. I called her a show off. 🙂
