Snow! In July!
We flew to Seattle, Washington today. It was cloudy over most of the United States, and I missed the chance to see a new part of the country from the air. But as we approached Seattle, the clouds turned from overcast to scattered and broken, and first I noticed that there were snow-capped mountains which I could see through the clouds. Then suddenly I realized that there was peak that was above the clouds! Wow! I waited until we landed, and I asked the pilot about it. He said that it was Mount Rainier, which is about 60 miles southeast of Seattle, and the elevation of the summit was 14,411 feet. What a stunning sight!
