This week’s Wordless Wednesday Where? location is Mount Rainier and SeaTac (Seattle-Tacoma) International Airport (SEA) Seattle, Washington. SEA is a hub for Delta Air Lines. The photo was taken in May 2017.


Mount Rainier is a large active stratovolcano in the Cascade Range in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. The mountain sits about 59 miles (95 km) southeast of SEA. The summit elevation is 14,411 ft (4,392 m). Mount Rainier is said to be one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes due to a high probability of eruption in coming decades and its proximity to developed areas.

Mount Rainier is part of a zone of active volcanoes and earthquakes (the Ring of Fire) that borders the rim of the Pacific Ocean. The zone includes South America, Central America, North America, the Aleutian Islands, Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia and New Zealand. According to National Geographic 75% of Earth’s volcanoes and 90% of Earth’s earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire.

Thanks to all who participated and had a little fun hazarding a guess. Congratulations to Carolyn Kay Hanson, Mike and Kellye Hefner, and Wremer Travels on nailing the challenge.
