It Looked Like A Space Ship Was Landing

I was out and about in my car today and as I pulled up to a stop light, I looked to my left and couldn't believe my eyes~it looked like a space ship was about to land on our always beautiful Mt Rainier. After the light turned green, I pulled into the nearest parking lot and got out my camera. (Monica, I actually had it with me today & I got this at Cirque Drive & Bridgeport Way). It's views like this that make me realize how blessed I am to live here in the Pacific
Northwest where~on any clear day Mt Rainier is always there.

Linda, the whole mountain looks surreal, like it was floating in space. D

I was out and about to when I saw that! However, I was kicking myself for NOT having my camera. I wrote a blog entry about it with some photos that I got of it ... yes, I RACED home like a mad woman to get my camera. It was worth it! It was an incredable sight. I like your location. I went to the school on Alaska Ave as I wasn't sure how far I could get as light was fading as well as the clouds breaking up.

Looks like a Volcano?

The cloud above the mountain reflects how it diverts the air currents
