I live near this mountain! Every time I see it, I have the same reaction: I want to hug it. I took this picture in Mt. Rainier National Park, August of 2004. The Mountain is hiding today - some fall rain has arrived. We have been blessed with many sunny days in September, so today I find the rain soothing. The task at hand is to keep the image of the mountain inside when these gray days float in and stay for awhile.
