Mount Rainier National Park

Mount Rainier (pronounced: /reɪˈnɪər/), is the highest mountain of the Cascade Range of the Pacific Northwest, and the highest mountain in the U.S. state of Washington. It is a large active stratovolcano located 54 miles (87 km) south-southeast of Seattle, in the Mount Rainier National Park. It is the most topographically prominent mountain in the contiguous United States and the Cascade Volcanic Arc, with a summit elevation of 14,411 ft (4,392 m)

Mt. Rainier is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, and it is on the Decade Volcano list.] Because of its large amount of glacial ice, Mt. Rainier could produce massive lahars that could threaten the entire Puyallup River valley, and poses a grave threat to the southern sections of the 3.7-million-resident Seattle metropolitan area – Source Wiki

Got a chance to drive to Mount Rainier, which is about 4 hrs drive from Seattle, along with childhood buddies Madhuker and Meher.

Here is the amazing view of Mt Rainier shot using Mavic Drone by Aniketh, all from a distance parking lot. I thought drone will not come back :-).

Entire drive to Mt Rainier is very pretty, surrounded by dense vegetation.  However, since I was on the passenger seat, I dozen off quite a bit :-).  Here is the spot, Madhu asked for the car to be stopped, to shoot some footage over the bridge… just 30 minutes before Rainier
