Mt Ranier is one of America's most dangerous volcanoes, last erupting in 1894. Located 54 miles (87km) SE of Seattle, Washington. The City of Tacoma, south of Seattle, is built on old lahars (mud flows). On clear days it dominates the skyline of these Cities. With this Dramatic Sky we also begin another Series: Clouds
