Mount Rainier  

Posted by Michael

I grabbed my camera just in time to snap some of these as we passed by the 14,411 ft volcano. Though it ranks 21st in the "tallest mountains" category, it was stunning both in Seattle (60 miles away) and what seemed like a few feet from our airplane.

When I took this I thought about that Bob Ross guy who was on "The Joy Of Painting". Remember that guy with the poofy hair that would paint a masterpiece, draw a huge black line down the middle of it at the end and then somehow make it look really good?? Anyway, this made me think about him painting snow with his little fan brush on the mountain. He would whisper everything: "We'll take this fan brush and just cover this little guy with snow...he's a happy mountain now".
God makes it look a little better than Bob did though.
