This is Mt. Rainier in Washington state casting its shadow on the clouds above at sunrise. You know, because mountains can do that. Also: be brokeback. It’s true, I remember seeing a movie about it once. The Notebook maybe?

Mt. Rainier is a volcano, climbing to a height of over 14,000 feet (4300 meters). There are no other mountains anywhere near that height nearby, so it’s really prominent in the landscape (by comparison, there are several fourteeners, as they’re called, in the Rockies, so they don’t stick out as much though they’re still breathtaking). The rising Sun catches the peak, and the shadow is cast on the underside of the cloud layer.

Beautiful. I’ve actually seen the Grand Canyon at sunset before and lemme tell you — it’s a real spiritual experience. Especially if you’re on mushrooms and convinced you’re an Indian shaman. I summoned a f***ing eagle, bro.

Hit the jump for a bunch more from different angles and locations but follow the links for some high-res shots.

Thanks to Joslyn, who just informed me the phases of the moon are caused by a mermaid singing at the man in the moon. Now that — that I believe.
