Just One of the Mountain’s Moods

163aMount Rainier

“This is what we see when we look up at Rainier, the beauty, the horror, the awe, the unbelievability of size that confirms our own consequence on this earth. We look at the mountain, like god and can imagine nothing larger. Its incompressible life-span reminds us of the fleeting mortality of our own bones. It looms over our lives on clear days and and stay present but hidden through the clouds of winter. Like god it remains everywhere forever.”

—Bruce Barcott,  Measure of a Mountain: Beauty and Terror on Mount Rainier
