Mt Rainer in Washington state
Mt. Rainier has quite a few tricks up its sleeve for adding additional beauty
to the Pacific Northwest, from the majestic snow-capped peaks, to the mysterious
lenticular cloud displays.
But another trick it pulls off during the fall
and winter is to cast a big shadow on a brilliant sunrise.
It only happens when the sun rises farther to the south as we head toward the
winter solstice and has to be in the exact position to where Rainier blocks the
first rays of morning light.
