Mount Rainier may be the glacier-covered peak most frequently shown in images on GlacierHub. Yet we never tire of it. Other people also seem to feel an enthusiasm for this extraordinary mountain, since they make their photographs publicly available. Here are some selections that have struck us. Taken from the air, from the sea and from land, they capture some of the mountain’s many aspects–sometimes remote, sometimes in the midst of human activity. They show that a mountain can never fully become familiar, because it can always be seen afresh.

  1. Mt Rainier is indeed a most muscular, majestic volcanic peak, queen of the Cascade chain, and visible from both Portland as well as Tacoma/Seattle. Almost as spectacular (and almost as high), though much less appreciated, is Mt. Adams to Rainier’s southeast, e.g. http://longshadowphoto.com/.
