Growing up in the State of Washington, when you see something every day for years, you tend not to notice it much in day-to-day living. Until you’ve been gone for what seems like an eternity then return, you notice it like it was a new discovery.
Case-in-point: Mt. Rainier. I’d forgotten, after being in Pennsylvania for 16 years, how cool Mt. Rainier looks on the horizon on a sunny day. And the fact that when you’re driving around in the Southend, you see it everywhere you go:
Of course I really like seeing it when it seems to be towering over a vineyard in the foreground:
Of course there are the other mountain ranges all around that are a sight for sore eyes – I haven’t taken pictures of them as I’ve been enamored by the majestic Mt. Rainier. I didn’t realize how much I missed seeing the mountains in the distance after gazing on nothing but farmlands for 16 years until I came back and have been enjoying a feast for my eyes.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for not abandoning me while I’m unable to make the visits I so want to do – it’ll happen at some point, but it might not be until we’re finally in our own place with our own internet connection and not all inhabiting the same room that gives no chance of quiet surfing time. At least it’s only temporary!!
