Climbing Mt. Rainier with Rainier Mountaineering for The American Lung Association of Washington's Climb for Clean Air. I was on a rest break on the glacier above Little Tahoma while the guide took an exhausted rope-mate to a lower party to go back down.

At first I was annoyed, but -- I was able to sit for 20 minutes and watch the sun come up. What an amazing experience. The two guys in red were on my rope team. Little Tahoma below us.
