Photo Essay: Mount Rainier, A Day in the Summer

Over the summer, I visited Seattle in Washington State to present the progress of one of my doctorate research projects at the 14th Annual Conference of the Metabolomics Society.

After the conference, with the great help of two adventurous friends, we dropped by the famous Mount Rainier.

The Journey Begins…

 

It was my first-time hiking on a mountain like Rainier, so the start was the hard part for me. But it turns out that like most things, there are methods – methods to do the best with the least, so to speak. Once I got into the flow, that was it.

 

And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good – Genesis 1:31a

 

The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way – Ryan Holiday

 

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast; for a very long journey hard work can be counterproductive

 

I never freeze – Black Panther 🙂

 

On Mount Rainier, I heard voices, real bloody voices. I heard that the future is a judgmental father, and that sounded just about right to me.

 


I took French classes in high school, and I was naïve and stupid enough to not take such opportunity seriously. Of all the catchy phrases I forgot, this I couldn’t – c’est fini.
