Washington · USA
One of many hastily composed images during my rushed virgin Rainier hike (ain't first times always the awkwardest??)...clearly not my best, but in the face of fast-moving clouds and a rare breakthrough by the sun (and vicious little flying turds that suck your blood), I had to move fast. The rather unusual framing here was done to include the delicious crepuscular rays in the sky, which probably aren't done full justice here in terms of their visual drama. Overall, a highly recommended trail...but do NOT forget to bring the flying turd spray--lots of it.
