As I drive back home through the valley, this is the view I often see to the south: a wide sweep of green grass and sprinklers (courtesy of the company that grows sod) and then Mt. Rainier at the far end. It's so beautiful.
We have another gorgeous view of Mt. Rainier on our way to school driving down 405 - at least on a fair day when it's still light as we drive down the freeway in the morning. It always makes my heart sing to see the mountain in all its glory. Just a normal part of our day but so awe-inspiring, every time.
