My Favorite Mount Rainier Viewing Spot in 98146

/images/uploads/0000/1405/mt_rainier.jpgWhen I was a kid I used to live close to, but not actually in the Arroyos.  I even used to ride my bike down that hill for some inexplicable reason, only to have to walk it all the way back up.  But had I not done that, perhaps I wouldn't have discovered what fabulous views of Mt. Rainier can be had up here.

 This was taken near sunset just the other day. When you're walking that area, it's so beautiful to see the mountain's presence behind the evergreens and the Sound.

When Mount St. Helens had its second large eruption in July 1980, I ran down 39th S.W., stood in the street and looked across the water. There, way off in the distance, you could actually see the plumes of ash rising from the mountain.  (I was out of state during the first eruption.)

My second favorite Mount Rainier viewing spot? The McLendon's Mural in White Center, of course! 

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Wow -- Gorgeous picture. I am officially jealous of your views.  I bet it was amazing to see Mount St. Helen in action!  You should add this picture to localism if you haven't already.

Thanks for the tip, Lori.  I just uploaded the photo to Localism, it was the first time I had ever uploaded a photo, and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that not only was I the first to upload in this neighborhood, but that I also got 100 points for it. SCORE!
