Photo of the Day: The Mountain


The Mountain, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
On a morning like this, you can truly understand why the native names for Mount Rainier, usually some variation of "Takhoma" depending on which tribe you're talking about, can best be translated simply as "The Mountain," with a capital T and a capital M. I shot this image from the Community Building at Longmire, looking across the Nisqually River at the national park's Emergency Operations Center and The Mountain rising majestically in the misty morning light. I shot RAW; I couldn't possibly have captured the dynamic light range any other way.
