Mount Rainier

When I’m in my car, I tend to listen to NPR or podcast or music. Anything to take my mind off traffic and make the trip feel shorter.

When I drive, I want to get to my destination as soon as possible. I seldom pay attention to my surroundings. I’m on auto-pilot much of the time. 

On my bike ride this morning I heard frogs. Very loud frogs hiding in the brush just off the side of the road.  Unlike the times when I drive, I enjoy finding ways to lengthen the distance of my bike route. With Cyclemeter I don’t worry about getting lost.

In the six years we’ve lived in Auburn, I’ve barely noticed this view of Mount Rainier just blocks away from our home until today. I pulled my bike off the side of the road and snapped this picture while the wild croaking continued.

One thought on “Mount Rainier

  1. One of the things I love most about my daily walks to the bus is how I able to get to know my town in detail. I love the things I discover that I never would driving.
