On June 23 the sky cleared and we had breath-taking views of 14,410' Mt. Rainier. The wispy cirrus clouds were too high to be a problem. The small peak just visible on the left is Little Tahoma. It is hard to believe that this peaceful-looking mountain is actually a "sleeping giant", it is a dormant volcano that could awaken at any time. It is the largest of several volcanoes located in the Cascade mountain range, part of the Ring of Fire.
