The picture in the upper left hand corner shows a bridge and in the background is Mount Rainier which is approximately 14,400 feet high. This bridge is approximately 1/2 mile long and services the island year-round. When it is sunny it shows up very beautiful and the background. It's something that we take this scene as a beautiful part of the Puget Sound area.
