Comment:  The northeast side of Mount Rainier. On the lower left side of the picture is the ridge which includes Little Tacoma Peak. In the center is the Emmons Glacier which with a surface area of 4.3 square miles is the largest area of any glacier in the "lower 48". In a classic optical illusion, the "cave" visible in the middle of the picture is really a rock outcropping. Branching off of the Emmons to the right is the Winthrop Glacier. At the summit the rim of one of the eastern summit crater is visible. The Columbia Crest marks the high point on the far side of this quarter mile wide crater. Geothermal heat from the volcano keeps areas of the crater rim free of snow and ice, and has formed an extensive network of glacier caves within the ice-filled craters. When this picture was taken Julie was over 13,000 ft, about 2 miles from the summit.
