Driving down the East side of Mt. Rainier in June, 2021 on Rt 410, I came upon a side road that looked like it would take me closer to Mt Rainier. While it didn't do that as far as I went - although traveling further up this side road would have gotten me to Summerland Backcountry Shelter or the White River Campground Ranger Station, depending on going on the left fork in the road or the right fork. I did not go further after photographing Fryingpan Creek.

When I crossed over Fryingpan Creek, I was taken in by the beauty of the scene.

So I parked and carefully climbed down to the creek bed.

When I saw this log with an Inuksuk (pile of rocks) on the end I knew it was perfect.

No doubt made by some tourists.

Fryingpan Creek comes down off Fryingpan Glacier on Mt. Rainier's east slope. The water flow is probably higher in early spring or after a heavy rainfall - which often happens being that close to the temperate rainforests in Olympic National Park to the northeast.

The mountains in the distance are small peaks leading up to Mt. Rainier, which is out of this image to the right. I believe one is called Banshee Peak.

All I know it was a beautiful day in early June and this was an amazing shooting location.

It's available as a 30" x 20" for $405.00

It's also available as a 15" x 10" for $150.00

Or a 21" x 14" for $245.00

Or for that special room, a 45" x 30" for $976.00

Or even a 60" x 40" for $1,665.00 for an office lobby, restaurant, or large home.

How can I help you?!
