Mount Rainier, Seattle Washington

Mt Rainier as seen from Seattle WA

Driving south into Seattle Washington the road curved to the east and this is what I saw. This huge beautiful mountain seemed to float in a bed of clouds over the city. It seemed so close as if it came from nowhere to settle over the city but in fact it was nearly 80 miles away.
