Near Mt. Rainier


In sharp contrast to the severe image on the previous page in this series, this view is in lush Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington.  The road curves gently.  There is a sublime peacefulness, a lushness of a July day, a day when the driver and passenger could forget about work responsibilities and all kinds of petty issues.  The driver is retired now.  The passenger is deceasad -- dead way too early in her life. 

One day the nearby grand mountain will blow.  It may be thousands and thousands of years from now.  Or it may be sooner.
