While in the Seattle area for a couple of months, I enjoyed a surprise drive to the internally churning volcano, Mount Rainier. In May, one can photograph its beauty, snowshoe up it, and even ski down.
Magically, a certain someone made it possible for me to borrow all the gear needed to snowshoe up Mount Rainier for a few hours (and he even skied down).
A hat, ski goggles, long sleeves, plus some favorite sunscreen, were absolutely necessary for protection from the glaring sun.
Note to self: never again forget to cover those spots on the neck and chin. Because at this elevation, on snow, big bad burns happen quickly.
