Hide and Seek
So, we’ve been living in Olympia, WA going on three months now. Most days since arriving here we’ve been able to look upon the majestic beauty of Mount Rainier. Most of these majestic views are obscured by tree lines, power lines, or urban creep… In other words, we haven’t been able to find a vantage point that revealed to us the entire scope of the Mt. Rainier experience in all its divinely inspired and created glory. Since the mountain has not come to the Bordens, the Bordens went to the mountain. Some two hours later, we arrived at the base of the mountain and once more, as we have played this visual cat and mouse game with “the mountain,” the 15,000 foot behemoth successfully evaded us again hiding itself in the wispy cloak of fog and clouds (frowny-frowning moment).
Not to be denied, we decided to ascend the mountain and take-in the sites we could as the smoky shroud teased us with its game of peek-a-boo cloaking and uncloaking of vistas and venues of the marvelous landscapes. Our never-say-die tenacity did not go unrewarded and we returned with a few digital spoils of war. So, without further ado, I’ll share the images our eyes beheld with you and tell you that we will look forward to the next day that we try to capture the image of the elusive Rainier.
