Turning a weekend of cat-sitting into a trip up Mt. Rainier in Washington (as it happened to be so close by). The largest glaciated mountain in the US.
Being Labor Day weekend, there were plenty of crowds that had the same idea — “Lets go to The Mountain!”
Which presents several problems for a photographer — Too many people crowding the scene. So, find locations that are off the beaten path, where the others aren’t.
Even shots like this, which is “On the road to Rainier”
