    Little Tahoma in morning sunlight, Cathedral Rocks

    Little Tahoma is a huge pyramidal satellite of Mt Rainier standing just to the east. It rises to 11138 ft/2802 m. Best climbed from Summerland to the east or from Paradise, you cross both the Cowlitz and Ingraham Glaciers. It is about 10 hours from Paradise. Rotten rock awaits.

    Mt Fremont summit

    Again, not the summit of Ranier, but a lookout on a nearby mountain. On a clear day, it is possible to see the North Cascades from here.
