Mount Rainier

Since we in Seattle have been (finally) enjoying our late summer, it seemed reasonable that an overnight trip to Mount Rainier would result in some clear skies. However, as every skier knows, "Mountain weather can change quickly." In this case, it meant that it was mostly rainy and pea soup fog. However, there were brief periods of the mountain peeking out through the fog.
