I hadn't thought about it when I picked my seat, and as the people on the opposite side oohed and aahed, I caught glimpses of my objective by peering across the aisle. Standing massive against the skyline, Mount Rainier is a sight to behold, and I knew soon enough I would be a speck on the side of it…
