I'm beginning to suspect that the people in Seattle never really see the top of Mt Rainier. The mountain is right there, but the top seems to be always hidden in mist or fog, or some kind of gloom. The sky today was gray; even rain would have made better pics, so we relaxed in the room.
In the evening we made our way back to the space needle to try to get some photos during twilight and some night shots. It seemed like every other tourist in the area was doing the same.After standing in line for about 45 minutes we made it to the top only to find crowds of tourists and hazy skies We took some shots around sundown but we were disappointed that the setting sun didn't illuminate Mt. Rainier like we hoped it would. We left before it got dark, which turned out to be a good thing. The road back to the interstate was closed for construction and we rode around in circles while the woman in the GPS "recalculated" us back into the orange cones over and over. Joe finally started talking back to her, and found our way back to the interstate. Making that trip at after dark wouldn't have been as funny as it was at the time.
