This view is facing east 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

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