Vantage Point: From the summit of Third Burroughs Mountain, looking southwest

Caption: Liberty Cap at center left, above the towering Willis Wall

PhotoDescr: Taken on an Indian Summer day trip to the Sunrise area of Mount Rainier National Park. Willis Wall towers over everything on the north side of Rainier. Formed due to a massive collapse on this side of the volcanic cone, it drops in a sheer cliff 4500 feet down to the head of the Carbon Glacier. The glacier clinging to the upper reaches is called the Liberty Cap Glacier. The spur in the midground is called Curtis Ridge, and separates the Carbon and Winthrop Glaciers.

The Willis Wall is very apparent when viewing Rainier from Seattle.
