Summer is not officially here until Jun 21st, but here's a photo of my environs. It is not my photo, but only because I do not have a telephoto lens to make the background stand out. On my digital camera, Mt. Rainier washes out, and seems to be indistinguishable from the skyline. We've got beaches, forests, lakes, mountains and cities. No place on earth like it!
Mt Rainier from Commencement Bay; The City of Tacoma is in the foreground.
