Photo Hunters ~ High

 

Mt. Rainier in the state of Washington is 14, 411 ft. high.

  • The base of the volcano occupies more than 100 square miles. 
  • It is the 5th highest mountain in the lower 48 states (only 83 feet lower than California’s Whitney!). 
  • It’s massive ice flows and violent winds are so similar to the biggest mountains that it is considered a training ground for McKinley and Everest itself. 
  • Avalanches from the mountain have been known to travel 60 miles

  1. Absolutely Beautiful. I’ve been to Mt. Ranier. It amazed me how it could be so warm while hiking up a short distance to the snow.
    Happy Photo Hunt! Mine’s up too.

  2. Great photos and interesting the way you have juxtaposed the landed aeroplanes – which can be high – with the really high mountain.

  3. “It’s massive ice flows and violent winds are so similar to the biggest mountains that it is considered a training ground for McKinley and Everest itself.” Really? I didn’t know that.

    We’ve hiked at Paradise and other parts of the mountain many times. Nice to meet you neighbor!
