A crisp, refreshing morning with a copy of Mt. Rainier in Reflection Lake.

Back from camping and exploring around the Hell's Canyon, the deepest gorge in North America. The canyon forms part of the border between Idaho and Oregon.

I grew up nearby, my old stomping grounds. Seems mountains and canyons are steeper than I remember when I ran up and down them back in the day.

Enjoy a wonderful Sunday and Memorial Day Holiday!

This day began with heavy fog and little promise of a bright new day. Patience was rewarded with a nice replication of Mt. Rainier in Reflection Lake as the fog lifted and a beautiful new day arrived. This is why photography can be addictive for so many of us.

Enjoy a wonderful Easter!

As Mt. Rainier is called by us local mountain lovers.

An early morning view from about halfway up the Pinnacle Peak trail. A couple more views in comments.

Standing at 14,410 feet tall, Mount Rainier isn’t just the tallest mountain in the Cascades—it’s also the highest mountain in the entire state and fifth tallest in the lower 48 states.

Geothermal heat from the volcano keeps areas of both crater rims free of snow and ice, and has formed the world’s largest volcanic glacier cave network within the ice-filled craters, with nearly 2 miles of passages.

A small crater lake about 130 by 30 feet in size and 16 feet deep, the highest in North America with a surface elevation of 14,203 feet, occupies the lowest portion of the west crater below more than 100 feet of ice and is accessible only via the caves.

Now wouldn't that be a fun photo shoot visiting the lake thru those caves? Send pics when you do.

As always many thanks for your comments, faves and support.

And from the darkness a bright light shines forth. Rainier's many glaciers capture the day's first light reflected in a calm Tipsoo Lake. This is one of the most iconic and popular places for photographers in the Pacific NW.

"With 26 major glaciers and 36 sq mi of permanent snowfields and glaciers, Mount Rainier is the most heavily glaciated peak in the lower 48 states. The summit is topped by two volcanic craters, each more than 1,000 ft in diameter, with the larger east crater overlapping the west crater. Geothermal heat from the volcano keeps areas of both crater rims free of snow and ice, and has formed the world's largest volcanic glacier cave network within the ice-filled craters, with nearly 2 mi of passages. A small crater lake about 130 by 30 ft in size and 16 ft deep, the highest in North America with a surface elevation of 14,203 ft (4,329 m), occupies the lowest portion of the west crater below more than 100 ft of ice and is accessible only via the caves."

Enjoy a Super Sunday!

Imposing Mt. Rainier looms in the distance above Tipsoo Lake.

"Mount Rainier is ranked third of the 128 ultra-prominent mountain peaks of the United States. Denali and Mauna Kea are taller from their base. Mount Rainier has a topographic prominence of 13,210 ft (4,026 m), which is greater than that of K2, the world's second-tallest mountain, at 13,189 ft (4,020 m). With 26 major glaciers and 36 sq mi (93 km2) of permanent snowfields and glaciers, Mount Rainier is the most heavily glaciated peak in the lower 48 states." Wiki

As always many thanks for taking a look and for any comments, faves and suggestions.

Enjoy a wonderful Sunday and week ahead!
