Mt. Rainier, Washington - #40 out of 50

Since this was a rather significant summit in terms of our getting to the highest point in each of the 50 states, I decided to put captions on some of our 5/11/16 Mt. Rainier climb pictures, and put them on the web.  Unlike our neighborhood Mt. Hood, or even Washington’s Mt. Adams, neither of us have tens of climbs of this mountain under our belts – this was #8 for me, and probably #7 for Jay.  It takes at least 3.5 hours to get to the trailhead, and for me, at least, it’s likely to always be at least a 2 day climb.  It’s such an impressive climb, though – and the crevasses are so monumental in size, that it’s such a pleasure to do a climb of the mountain.  If you're interested in the “picture story”, go to:

[Note, Google is now showing this in Google Photos, rather than using Picasa Web, so in order to see the captions, you have to click on the little "i" in the upper right hand corner of the screen.  If you're looking at the album as a whole, it will give you the comments that I put in for the whole album.  Once you click on the first picture, it will start showing the captions on each photo.]  I hope that you enjoy seeing the pictures and reading the captions as much as we enjoyed doing the climb!!
