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!

Re: This looks great!

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

If you had a zoom camera,

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

Re: If you had a zoom camera,

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!!!

Mt R...

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.

Re: Mt R...

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

Re: Mt R...

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 !!!

Re: Mt R...

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!!!

Re: One step at a time....

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!
