Yesterday we spent the whole day chasing a mountain, and today was more of the same. Sadly, the weather didn’t cooperate quite as well this time around, so I’m going to be nice and give you a big clue along with the photo….
Yesterday, we had trouble finding a decent view of our first port of call, the Tacoma Narrows bridge(s). The original bridge was nicknamed Galloping Gertie, because of the way it moved in high winds. Its eventual collapse in 1940, just 4 months after it opened, was famously captured on film.
Our second destination yesterday was Mount Rainier, the ice-capped volcano visible from Seattle. To be honest, we’d all but give up on seeing her summit. Then, as we began to descend the mountain, the clouds parted, and she finally revealed herself!
