All year long I waited to get the chance to visit this amazing place, Mt. Rainier National Park. So the wee before the kiddos went back to school we took a summer road trip to Washington and I made a side trip to visit my Mountain. Two good buddies (photographers) and I made the drive and hike to this spot, then waited till 2am when the milky way made its way directly over the mountain. By far the best trip this summer.
