Another 100+ miles of visibility today. I took some snap shots while walking the dogs.

Mount Baker with the Black Buttes: from left to right Lincoln Peak, Colfax Peak, and Grant Peak (summit of Mt Baker)

The Olympic Mountains. Seattle high rise buildings are in the lower left corner.

Nice! Good to see that you are out taking in the views! I'm off to run the kids and the dogs myself...might re-elevate that habit in place of ones involving keyboards.

That is pretty cool. Could you see Rainier too?

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'. :roll:

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.
