Mountains

One of the best reasons to live in Seattle is that you are, most literally, surrounded by mountains. The Olympics to the West and the Cascades to the East.

Mount Rainier pops out of nowhere and suddenly Mother Earth dwarfs my problems like a car rolling over an ant. The mountains hang a painting in the sky that you can never reach out and touch.

Whether you long for the speed of the slopes or the quiet peace of a snow-capped forest or simply the surreal vistas,  the mountains of the Pacific Northwest offer so much more than rain.
