Getting to Know Seattle: The Mountain is Out

Upstate New York isn’t particularly flat, especially in the Finger Lakes region and in the Adirondacks. But my former home town of Rochester was flat, and there were no mountains to be seen from our San Gabriel Drive home. That left me a bit perplexed when I moved to Seattle and I’d hear people say on a nice day, “Oh, the mountain is out.” “The mountain” of course meant Mount Rainier, and here she is in all her glory on a beautiful fall day.

Look to the right third of the pic, with the peak rising out of the clouds.
