This view of the west face of Mt. Rainier from our office window, (non telephoto) and you see the Tahoma Glacier in the middle right, Puyallup and Mowich glaciers in the center/ left.  Liberty Cap on the top left and Point Success on the top right, Columbia Crest in the center/ summit.  We may have a lot of rain in the Pacific Northwest, and we are thankful for it, so that we can have these beautiful glaciers to play on!

Here is one of our special sunrises, with the shadow of the mountain
pointing to the right.

This page would not be complete without a shadow of the mountain
pointing to the left!

Here is one of those “red sky in the morning…” shots.  We got quite a bit
of snow that day.

This is a view looking West at the Emmons Glacier, and Ruth Mountain/Glacier Basin on the lower right.  Picture taken from Crystal Mountain Ski Area.
