Mount Rainier, also known as Tacoma, is an active stratovolcano that last erupted in 1894. At 14,411 feet, Rainier is the highest point in Washington and dominates the skyline except where towering trees block the view. On average, sixty feet of snow falls on Rainier each winter and feeds dozens of year-around glaciers. Many roads are closed depending on the accumulation starting in the fall.
On the day of this picture, Kit and I hiked a couple of thousand feet of elevation up the base of the mountain. The views were spectacular even at our relatively low height. We have been filled with joy at the beauty of God’s creation all summer. Our prayer is that you are experiencing God afresh in your own fashion.
