A view of the mountain from the Nisqually delta last fall. It's 78 river miles(125.5 kilometers) from the slopes of Mount Rainier, where the river originates, to the delta. As the crow flies, it's around 50 miles (80.5kilometers). Clouds usually obscure the mountain when I visit the refuge. So, this is an unusual sight to me.
