big vistas – granite mountain


Would you walk several miles and 3,800 feet up Granite Mountain to get these views? I did. Result: foot pain and happiness. Mt. Rainier is featured in the first two pictures. Why didn’t they keep its Indian name – Tahoma?











Mt. Rainier is currently named for this guy, Rear Admiral Peter Rainier of the British Navy. He fought against the U.S. in the Revolutionary War and later captured territories for England in the West Indies, sinking and capturing many ships in the process. Think of Pete when you see the mountain.
