Mt. Rainier Panorama from Skyline Trail

Mt. Rainier Panorama

Enlarge for best view!

A merge of 4 shots

While hiking that day, several of us heard a loud roar that we later agreed was an avalanche.

Kathy ...

That's the Nisqually Glacier feeding the
Nisqually River.

Those glaciers are "actively" moving. You
probably heard some rockfall associated with
the movement of the glacier.

Either that, or somebody in your group had
their Sony Walkman turned up too loud !!!

Re: Kathy ...

Well, it could have been rockfall but it sounded like thunder or a sonic boom to several of us! Later some people ahead of us said they saw an avalanche on the face.

Saw no Walkmans that day but did see teens going up the trails in flip-flops!

Re: Kathy ...

Very true!

That's a cool waterfall coming down into the
Nisqually, and great capture of Tum Tum peak
off to the far left.

Something could have come down off the
Nisqually or Kautz ice cliffs. Great pan !!!

Re: Kathy ...

Thanks Larry! I'll be posting more of that "No Name" waterfall later since I got some shots as I hiked up.

Excellent!

A marvellous panoramic photo, dear Kathy...I imagine this was in the early morning?

Re: Excellent!

Thanks! Actually this was early afternoon. Early morning could have been cloudy and it takes at least a couple hours to get up that high. Mt. Rainier get clouded over all day about 30-60% of the time so I grabbed a sunny day and hiked up!

Had to zoom to check out this one - one of the best panoramas I've seen!

Re: Very cool panorama!

Thanks! Gotta give credit to Canon for help on this one. Rainier is so worth a visit.
