See That Mountain? It’s the Centerpiece of Some of the Most Beautiful Sunrises You’ll Ever See.

We here at FaithHub work everyday in Seattle, and every once in a while we are greeted with some of the most beautiful imagery. Fifty-four miles southeast lies Mount Rainier, the mountain you can see dominating scenic shots of sports broadcasts and Kelsey Grammer’s window on Frasier. Our neighbor city to the south, Tacoma lies almost directly west of that mountain, and is privileged to sunrises visible nowhere else. During the autumn and winter months when the sun rises farther to the south, Rainier blocks the first rays of the sun as it rises, casting an incredible shadow in the morning clouds, tinged in beautiful hues of orange and yellow.
