The Cowlitz Chimneys

The Cowlitz Chimneys are comprised of the Main (south) Chimney (7600 feet or 2 316 m), the Central (middle) Chimney (7420 feet or 2 261 m) and the North Chimney (7015 feet or 2 138 m). The Chimneys lie to the East of Mt. Rainier and just south of the Goat Island and Tamanos Mountains. These shots are taken from Sunrise in Mt. Rainier National Park.

Sunrise Panorama

Panorama taken near the road to Sunrise in Mt. Rainier National Park. From left to right the names of the prominent peaks are: Tamanos Mountain, the Cowlitz Chimneys, Goat Island Mountain, and of course, the lower parts of Mt. Rainier. This was just after I had learned how quickly the weather can change – within 5 minutes the Sourdough Mountain ridge at Sunrise had completely been overcome with clouds and the temperature dropped dramatically. This was pretty much the last glimpse of Mt. Rainier from Sunrise that day.
