Looking the same...

Looks the same as it did in 1983. It's awesome character ... on Rainier's southwest side. SouthRaker, THANKS for voting on my "GINGHAM SKIRTS BUTTE" picture. Just thought you should know, it's rock is very unstable; contains bentonite or "swelling clay." Happy climbing!!! I WANT AN OLYMPUS camera, please!

Re: Looking the same...

Thanks for checking it out. I was really blown away at the beauty of this area, it was way more scenic than I had expected. Thanks again.

Very Nice!

This side is not often photographed. I love those fall colors too.

Re: Very Nice!

Thanks gimp! I think most would agree that fall colors make for some of the best scenery. This is no exception... and it was even more beautiful in person!

Never

seen Rainier showing so much rock! Seems like he is usually buried under the snow.

Re: Never

I agree! Maybe it's just the face I was photographing combined with the time of year, but I've never seen Rainier with less snow either.
