Steps Sometimes
Skyline Trail, Mt. Rainier NP - August, 2009

It was hard for me to keep walking when I had this view in front of me! Just wanted to stop constantly and take pictures!

You hear so much about Rainier but when you get there it become this close! It's amazing!

which you probably do, you could zoom in on a
mountain goat chewing its cud at the 11,554'
level.

Wish I could! I took most of these pictures with a telephoto lens (average quality)that did me well considering I had owned this camera barely a month at that time!

How I wish I could afford good glass!!!

Beautiful! I've flown directly over in a small plane but never set foot atop. Great photo, thanks for sharing. Thanks too for taking a moment to checking out my pic.

Thank you! I would love to fly over Mt. Rainier like you did! And I've been enjoying your "framed" pictures...

Yes, this economy is really hurting folks.

I love your "quote" on your profile page, Kath!

Climbing mountains is more than a metaphor, but it sure helps to have some "green stuff"
to discover new and exciting places.

I made a discovery! Money doesn't grow on trees !!!

Thanks Larry! It's good to have you back on SP after your trip. So you didn't find $$$ growing in the Philippines among all those lovely flowers?

Sadly, I've had to cut short my travel plans for this summer because they want me to start a new project at work. My retirement job is turning into a career!!!

If I ever get back to Rainier I'll try to get up to Camp Muir but really, I was happy just to get back to Paradise after sliding down the trail and breaking an ankle. Getting older isn't for wusses !

Thanks!
