Snowy caps atop an active volcano at Mt. Rainier

People come from near and far to catch a glimpse of the tri-peaks of Washington State's Mount Rainier, a towering formation of rock and ice.

The mountain's majesty is enough to make one forget that lying underneath is one of the world's more active volcanoes, but that never seems to keep away the millions of visitors each year. Mary recently visited the area, and learned much about the mount once known as Tacoma.
