Fly me to the moon!
Well, flying over the magnificent Mount Rainier is pretty darn close!
From above, take a look at this majestic mountain with a summit elevation of 4,392 meters, made of rocks from 500,000 years ago!
Mount Rainier is a large active stratovolcano in the Cascade Range. The Cascades are part of the Pacific Ocean’s Ring of Fire. All of the eruptions in the contiguous United States over the last 200 years have been from Cascade volcanoes, including Mount St. Helens in 1980.
I took these photos from the airplane window, flying over Washington State and seeing Mount Rainier.
So, if you are feeling the cool breeze brought by your air conditioner in the hot summer, click these photos to feel the coolness brought on by nature!
