ABC Wednesday--M is for Mountains

Visit the ABC site for more Ms.
A mountain view in southern India.

A mountain view in Siberia


I've seen mountains all over the West and in other parts of the world, but there just does not seem to be a comparison to our Pacific Northwest volcanoes. Here you can see Mt. Rainier from a return flight into Seattle. Beyond it just to the left you can see Mt. Adams. (Click to enlarge to get a better view.) At the right edge of the horizon you can just make out Mt. St. Helens.

For a right now view of Mt. Rainier, look here, though sometimes you can see nothing but the fog. The volcano cam for Mt. St. Helens close up to the crater is not working right now.

Stop by and visit my new blog. I set it up so that I could post large format photos. I won't do memes on it, just whatever strikes me at the moment, so I called it 365-no themes-no memes.
