And can’t see diddly-squat … we always end up in the Pacific NW when it rains and swamps the area with fog. I joke with my Pac NW students that there may not even be mountains out there — we’ve never seen them.
And here we are looking at Multnomah Falls. (There’s a top somewhere; I think this falls comes straight down from Zeus on Mt Olympus.)
