Photograph by -rabid- on reddit
Seen here is a view of Washington’s Mt Rainier at sunset. The photo was taken by reddit user -rabid-, who captured the east side of the mountain from his window seat on an airplane.
Mount Rainier is a large stratovolcano located 54 miles (87 km) southeast of Seattle. It is the most topographically prominent mountain in the contiguous United States and the Cascade Volcanic Arc, with a summit elevation of 14,411 ft (4,392 m).
This is why you always ask for the window seat! For 27 more reasons why, check out this post from last year.
