Big Mountain, Far Off

The very striking cable-stayed bridge over Thea Foss Waterway is prominent in this view.  That body of water leads into Commencement Bay and Puget Sound.

Not so obvious, but definitely there in the distance, beyond the right tower of the bridge and the nearby hills, is the top portion of 14,411 foot  Mt. Rainier, an awesome landmark, a sleeping giant.  It requires decent visibility to be seen from here, but can also be seen from much further away, far to the north of Seattle, when sky conditions are right.
