I've been going to the Sewing Expo in Puyallup WA for 5 or 6 years - I don't remember when my first year was. I love flying in to seattle the views are spectacular. I love the area. Some day I'll go there and not have to spend 10 hours a day in a convention center. Don't get me wrong the Expo is Advertised as the largest in the Nation, so the amount of sewing eye candy is amazing. The amount of talent that walks up and down the isles is amazing. I always come back with sketches all over any kind of paper I can get my hands on.
So for over 5 years I've admired Mt Rainer - I would like to climb it someday. It is a 4 or 5 hour drive from seattle and yet when you can see it (which isn't often) it looks like you are right next to it - that is how big it is. I have been trying to get a good picture of that mountain for as long as I've been going.
This year I did it. The last day I was driving to drop the rental car off and then get taken to the airport and I see this:
a clear shot of the mountain - rats I'm low on time - I have to make my plane. I can't stop - Well I've got a couple from the road. But I really really want a good one. I couldn't see it from inside the airport there was a control tower in the way. Well at least I got one from the road.
I get on the plane and we start to take off - and I wonder am I on the right side of the plane to be able to see the mountain on our flight out. I don't see it - I don't see it. And then This:
I was in Ahh! I will be back to climb this mountain
- but not in the winter - It was way to cold.
