14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Spring thaw on Mt.Rainier, Washington

We stopped along the roadside of Mt Rainier at about 3200 ft to hike down to the riverbed to get a closer look at the melting mountainside with its many waterfalls. When we reached the rushing river, we realized we had an unobstructed view of the summit. The view was absolutely breathtaking.
