Related 2 thoughts on “Mount Rainier a Hundred Miles Away” Rainier is funny in that it only shows up at a distance — when you’re in its vicinity it hides itself. I live in western Washington,and I’ve never gotten this clear a view! It helps to be at a higher elevation, I’d imagine. I lived near Seattle for a couple years and could count the number of times I saw Rainier on one hand. Comments are closed.
