And here it is reflected...



Here we are now --on the feast of Stephen--and on the other side of the mountain. Mount Rainier has a different aspect depending on which direction you see it from. And here it is reflected in the windows of the (New) Jackson Visitor Center at Paradise. the day after Christmas remained clear and sunny, though the wind came up a bit fiercely.


The real thing, reflected here in a display about the fragile meadow ecostructure. If you haven't visited Paradise recently, you are missing the wonderfully done updated displays in the new VC.
This one says it all.


Weekend Reflections are the brainchild of James from Newtown Area Daily Photo. Visit him to see who else is reflecting on the world around them today.

More from our winter visit to the mountain after the psalm tomorrow--and after we finish visiting.

This is a great travel blog you have here. I have one myself which I hope to be a top resource for those looking to travel. We have a lot to cover and not that much time to do it. I was wondering if we could exchange links to help spread some traffic around. Please let me know if this is possible.

Fantastic photos of the Mt Rainier reflections. It looks like a cool visitor center. I was there years ago but would love to see it again.

Outstanding photos. Mountains can humble us. I'll never forget looking across (not down or up) at the summit of Mt. McKinley while flying in a high altitude passenger plane on the way home from Alaska.
