Überschreitung Mount Angeles (1968m) - hoch über dem Pazifik

Seattle's Skyline
In Seattle gibt es 2 Orte von denen man die Skyline besonders gut sehen kann: Kerry Park im Norden von Seattle und Alki Beach in West Seattle. Da es beim Alki Beach Radwege und Fussgängerwege direkt am Pazifik gibt war die Wahl für mich klar. Am ersten sonnigen Nachmittag ging ich bei der Seacrest Marina los Richtung Alki Beach....

Mt. Rainier National Park / Skyline Loop
Der Mt. Rainier - was für ein Berg! Es ist weniger die stattliche Höhe von immerhin knapp 4.400m als vielmehr die völlig isolierte Lage, die diesen Berg in den Cascade Mountains selbst für berggewohnte Touristen eindrucksvoll macht.

A Day of Pure Alpine Excellence
"While there is a technical side to mountaineering, a confrontation with the raw power of the mountains that came only to be understood by those who venture into the hills, there is an essential element that everyone is familiar with, and that is the friendship you forge along the way.
