Here There and Everywhere

Five Mountains

Every now and then flying into Seattle you can see a whole line of mountains, from Mt. Rainier to Mt. Hood, the remains of Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams and sometimes, way off in the distance, Mt. Shasta.

I think you can see three easily in this photo; Mt. Rainier in the center, one to the left and one to the right.

East of the mountains, it is totally clear. West of the mountains, there is cloud cover:

My car is waiting, my bags are off the plane first – is my travel karma back? I don’t dare count on it, but I’m thankful for all travel mercies.

  7. Claim a view for my own, ha?!

    hmmmm! There’s this valley in Syria crammed right between a mountainous and the Mediterranean. The valley is comprised of a huge amount of farm lands each like a block of a different color. The view from the mountain towards the horizon overlooking this valley is the best I have seen in my life.

    The valley is called, AL Ghab Valley
