The photo above was taken by my wife from the right seat, soon after I learned to fly and was confident enough to carry passengers.

When I first saw the photo I was surprised to see Mount Rainier in the distance. It's not that I didn't know it was there, I had just never noticed it right there at the end of the runway.

"What!" she said. "How could you not have noticed?"

My mind was on other things.

"Like what?"

Learning how to takeoff and land.
