Chairs, Chipmunks, My Shoes and Mt. Rainier

I promised to show my Mount Rainier pictures, which I took in August.
Well, I have two sets of them.
One set includes gorgeous-out-of-this-world-wonderful-weather pictures,
and another set includes mysterious-dramatic-foggy-cloudy-weather pictures.
Let's start with the first set.
Just several notes, and I'll let you enjoy the view.
First, Mt. Rainier is the highest mountain in Washington.
Second, I didn't feed the chipmunks! Someone else gave them nuts.
It's not a good idea to feed wildlife. Please, don't do that!
Third, the beautiful petunias belong to the Summit House restaurant,
the highest restaurant in Washington state.
Gondola ride to the top of Crystal mountain, where the pictures were taken,
costs $20 for adult with discounts for youth and seniors.
Trust me, it's worth it!
And, at last, Yes, those chairs are very comfortable  and
No, there is not any barrier in front of you when you sit on them.
Now, please enjoy the grand magic of wonderful Mount Rainier!

  1. Wow wonderful mountain views, those petunias are beautiful up against the snow capped mountains.

    1. Thank you, Karen! Sometimes, when night temperatures are low, they cover flowers with plastic.

  2. Wow, awesome views! Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow, beautiful pictures, it's almost like beeing there, thanks for letting me tag along :-)

  4. Wonderful photos! I kept thinking yikes I think I am going to fall, very realistic.


  5. Amazing photos, wow. Looks just like our kind of day out.

  6. Simply spectacular!! Wow! I love the shots Tatyana. The flowers against the snowy peaks in the background are amazing. Just beautiful.

  8. Wow!! Breathtaking, wow. thanks for sharing!!!!

  9. Oh my goodness, what an amazing place - it reminds me of the Swiss Alps. I would SO love to sit in one of those deckchairs and admire that view for real!!

  10. Wonderful views, though some of the shots made my toes curl! The gondola ride must have been fabulous. I would love to eat at one of those tables overlooking the mountains.

  11. Beautiful mountainview with the flowers on the foreground! And the squirrel......

  12. What an experience the Gondola ride must be, I would have to leave Myra behind as it takes a helluva lot to persuade her to even drive over a bridge. Never mind, your pictures gave me the feeling of being there.

  13. wow beautiful, just beautiful, both this and the previous post, thank you so much for sharing Tatyana, you must have had a wonderful break, Frances

  20. I'm um, a wee bit dizzy at the moment. Those photos were just stunning, Tatyana. I'm not terribly fond of heights so now that I've seen our photos I don't have to actually make the trip. :) That blue sky and the white mountain...just spectacular. We live in such a beautiful world.


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
