Mount Rainier is one of FIVE major volcanoes in Washington State. It's also the tallest of the Washington volcanoes.

It's one of the most beautiful landmarks in Washington and has inspired the name of a beer and a baseball team. It's also inspired the imaginations of children and adults who call Washington home. The state park is pretty cool, too. After more than 100 years, wolverines are living in Mount Rainier State Park.

I think seeing all of these pictures of Mount Rainier through the years (one is almost 100 years old) is pretty sobering. Long after you and I are gone, the mountains will still be here. Let's take a look at some awe-inspiring pictures of one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. (I guess beauty comes with a price sometimes.)
