More of the Mountain

Colombia Crest, the highest point on the mountain with lenticular or convex clouds on its summit. This shot also shows the interesting terminus of one of the glaciers or at least a part of the glacier system. Mt. Rainier has the greatest single-peak glacial system in the United States. Glaciers radiate from the summit and slopes of the 14,411 foot volcano. This mild telephoto shot was taken from "The Trail of the Shadows" across the road from the Longmire Inn on the south side of the mountain. The color version is below in the comment as well as another shot which is the left slope of this view.
