The Mountain is Out

Mount Rainier. Tahoma. Tacobeh. T’Swaq.

It has gone by many names, but we cannot deny that we love our mountain. We breathe a little deeper and feel a little more at peace when we see it. Mount Rainier is an icon, so we couldn’t resist trekking deep into the park to discover more about the bipeds and quadrupeds that make it so special. But we also couldn’t ignore its ominous side. A full-color map shows its path of destruction, with words about where to flee when an eruption occurs. We bring to you the benevolence and the bone-chilling.
