    I have been in the Tacoma Seattle area for almost a week. Weather has been beautiful but visibility not perfect.

    Tonight as I came back from dinner, Mount Rainier was clearly visible from the 17th floor of my hotel room.

    I don't know about those of you who get to see such a similar sight on a regular basis, but I can't imagine the point where I am still not in awe of such beauty.

    I was driving around yesterday and saw Rainier and thought the same thing...you tend to take it for granted when you can't see the mountain 9 months out of the year.

    I used to do the Seattle auto show in the King Dome. When the weather is good that City is stunning!

    If you take the time to look and reflect there is beauty everywhere. This was the sunrise off our balcony in New Smyrna Bch this morning.

    Moved there when I was 18 till I was 20. I hiked around rainier a lot. PNW is a very beautiful place. If you’re ever out there and can get to Ruby Beach, I’d highly recommend it.

    No I am actually staying in Tacoma. Hotel Murano I would highly recommend it to anyone, food in the hotel is incredible, large portions and fair priced.

    You don't get views like that in Ohio do you? That hotel looks like it's suffering from E-quake damage.

    My brother had been inviting me out for years. He lives in Puyallup which is south of Tacoma.

    It would be. It might take morning a year's worth of vacation all in one shot.
