As a thirteen year old, I lived in Bellevue. One day I got off the school bus and saw a prominent white cone way to the north. I ran home and used a Washington state map to crudely trace the line of sight to Mt. Baker. I was totally jacked! I excitedly told my parents and siblings. "So what? We see Rainier on almost every clear day don't we?" Well, I guess you just can't explain shit to 'flatlanders'.
Anyway, I always had a shadow of doubt about that Baker sighting and now, 43 years later, thanks to EB, I can be reasonably sure of what I saw.
