A Year Apart

Or thereabout. Below are images from the Mt. Rainier Web camera for the morning of a day in early June for the last three years. So, what important here? Not much except the snowpack, especially what is poking through. Yes, the trees are a little taller each succeeding year, but they still have to have the snowmelt enough to unbend from the overlying snow and straighten.

And third, June 5, 2009

In the end, it's mostly just a curiosity than anything, but still interesting.
