Paradise at Mount Rainier

I went with my Grandparents up to Paradise at Mount Rainier in Washington State on Sunday for brunch. Mount Rainier is 14,410 Feet tall and is the highest peak in the Cascade Range. Paradise is located at 5,400 feet up the Mount and has an observatory and the Paradise Inn. From were I grew up in Tacoma the Mountain would linger over the city like a ghost in the sky, that is on clear days. Mount Rainier as always been a family favorite with my Grandfather taking numerous day and over night scouting trips on the Mountain back in the 70's.As you can image the weather was not the most ideal that day it was not raining but it was rather cloudy. But my philosophy is you can not wait for the weather but make the best of it. Although it would be nice to go back up when I can actually see the Mountain!I love taking photos the one above is my personal favorite of all the pictures I took.
