Mt. Rainier, South Side in Summer by 

A fabulous and HOT! day at Mt. Rainier National Park August 19, 2009, showed the exposed rock and receding glaciers. At over 14,400 ft. high, snowfall could begin soon for the winter. A climber who had just hiked down from the summit said the remaining snow was only six to eight inches deep, other than on the glaciers themselves. We normally only see this mountain as a majestic white giant gracing the Puget Sound horizon, so it’s a surprise to see so much of the black rock showing out from under its remaining snow cover.

The forests along the way are incredible, worth seeing just for themselves.

Besides photographing things I find beautiful, I love to paint in watercolor! It can be loads of fun, creating its own beautiful color combinations as they run together on the paper, or it can be surprisingly independent, doing “its own thing” where you pretty much have to give up control – one never knows! That’s all just part of the fun!

    A gorgeous image Pat , is this climate change which is effecting it ?

  • Hi, Irene – I’m no expert on the subject, but I’m sure our climate change is affecting both the amount of snow that is or is not falling, as well as the rate at which the glaciers are melting. Thanks for stopping by!
