Mt. Rainier 2012 - KoziPhoto

10-01-12 Today I decided to hike at Sunrise, I usually go to Paradise so wanted to try a new location. There weren't very many clouds in the sky, so the lighting went from gorgeous to harsh very quickly. I'll never complain though, as long as I get to spend time in the mountains I am a happy camper! This little mountain chickadee greeted me at the trail head and flew right up to me!
