Today is our day to tour Mount Rainier. We went with Sam and Mary Tozer and had a wonderful day. The weather was perfect (which is not always the case in Washington) so we were blessed for that.

Some history: Mount Rainier (pronounced:/ray-NEAR) is a massive stratovolcano located 54 miles southeast of Seattle in the state of Washington. It is the most topographically prominent mountain in the contiguous United States and the Cascade Volcanic Arc, with a summit elevation of 14,411 ft. Mt. Rainier is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. Because of its large amount of glacial ice, Mt. Rainier could potentially produce massive lahars that would threaten the whole Puyallup River valley.

Mount Rainier being the highest point in Washington can be seen from many places within the state (near the Seattle area).
