More Geeked Out Goodness!

Been scanning in some of my old photos recently and came across this one. It is a picture that I took when me and some buddies marched up Mount Rainier twelve years ago. Cool picture if I do say so myself...

A good adventure that day. Got some good turns in, almost went off a cliff, and had too bushwhack across a sketchy area to get back to our car. I miss that kind of fun.

Why is it geeked out goodness?

I was trying to figure out the name of the pointy ramp shaped rock about a third in from the right (Anvil Rock) in Google Earth. When I turned on the terrain and rotated my view to where I thought I was, I was amazed at how close it was to my picture!

Other that a different snow covering, it was pretty much spot on. You can see Little Tahoma peeking over on the right, Gibraltar and Cathedral rocks.

THIS IS WHY YOU NEED GOOGLE EARTH! For Gods sake, it is free!

Later I went to some high country lakes that I remember camping at and they too were just like I remember. Now that the bad weather is coming, I will be doing some exploring.
