Description

I captured this back in August when I did some hiking and photography with a couple of buddies (Cliff Birdsall. and Ian McRae) around Mt. Rainier National Park. Ian had a very cool app on his phone that told him when and where the International Space Station (ISS) would be flying over. Ian kinda figured that it would be coming into view near Mt. Rainier somewhere. Imagine our surprise as it rose right out of the top of the mountain!!. It took me a second (which explains the gaping the trail at the top of the mountain) to say "hey dummy, start taking pictures". Which I did for the duration the ISS was in my view. I took a total of 6 images then merged them creating this image. 90 mins later the ISS reappeared to the right (North) of the mountain, not quite as impressive, but still cool. Right place at the right time...Thanks Ian! It was worth the run up the hill to get to this location. And Ian, your right you can see the White river from here.
