That's the Nisqually Glacier feeding the
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 !!!
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!
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 !!!
Thanks Larry! I'll be posting more of that "No Name" waterfall later since I got some shots as I hiked up.
A marvellous panoramic photo, dear Kathy...I imagine this was in the early morning?
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!
This is making me anticipate my trip to Rainier even more. Great panorama!
Thank you! I would go back in an instant.
Enjoy your trip and I can't wait to see your pics!
Had to zoom to check out this one - one of the best panoramas I've seen!
Thank you Nanuls!
I've been admiring your work for quite awhile and hope to see your country someday!
Thanks! Gotta give credit to Canon for help on this one. Rainier is so worth a visit.
