Image Caption: STS066-121-064 Mount Rainier, Washington, U.S.A. November 1994
Snow-covered Mount Rainier, the tallest mountain in the Cascade Range at 14 410 feet (4395 meters), can be seen in this low-oblique, west-southwest-looking photograph. Mount Rainier, a stratovolcano that has been dormant since 1850, has 26 active glaciers. Portions of Interstate Highway 90, Kachess Lake, and Cle Elum Lake are discernible near the bottom right. Scattered rectangular patterns are caused by the clearcutting practices of the timber companies in the region.
