Mount Rainier is graced with more snow than most can possibly imagine. And that makes for some incredible backcountry skiing, and backcountry photography, as tahoma has found.

This shot, looking south down Mazama Ridge from inside the park, shows the western Tatoosh Range (l-r): Castle, Pinnacle Peak, Plummer Peak, the top of distant Mount St. Helens, Lane Peak, and sunlit Wahpenayo Peak.
