On some days it's nice to take a little ride in a plane. Mt Rainier never looked so good and it is truly a great mountain, great ridge lines, side mountains leading up to the summit, and it overlooks Seattle with authority.
If and when you ever get to Seattle you must go up to the top of the Space Needle and view the mountain. I also recommend that you take a day and visit the mountain in person. A must see is the high lakes at the summit of HWY 410. Pack a picnic lunch and a Rogue and enjoy, just don't make any noise as this place is quiet and should remain that way.
