Imagine Looking Into The Sky And Seeing THIS. It Would Take Your Breath Away.

During the autumn and winter months when the sun rises farther to the south, Mount Rainier, a stratovolcano near Tacoma, Washington, blocks the first rays of the Sun as it rises, casting an incredible shadow in the morning clouds, tinged in beautiful hues of orange and yellow.

Mount Rainier is a massive volcanic peak located 54 miles southeast of Seattle in Washington state.

It has a summit elevation of 14,411 ft, and with no other mountains in the area near that height it makes it a very prominent sight on the horizon.

During cloudy mornings in the fall or winter, when the cloud heights are just right, the rising Sun can frame the peak from below and cast a long shadow on the underside of the clouds.

On clear days the mountain peak dominates the southeastern horizon and can be seen from as far away as Portland, Oregon and Victoria, British Columbia.
