The future is hazy

Mount Rainier National Park – 2016

As I was wondering about this French name so far away from home, I dug a little deeper to find out. As it happens, this has nothing to do with nearby Canada. Mount Rainier was named after rear Admiral Rainier by British Navy Captain George Vancouver, who was a close friend of his.

Rainier was born in England on 24 November 1741, the grandson of Daniel Regnier, a Huguenot refugee who fled France following the revocation of the Edict of Nantes

Our future looks a bit like the top of this mountain in the State of Washington. Hazy, but beautiful. It’s up to us to imagine, or even create, what will appear behind those clouds when the weather clears up.

As Rainier would have said to his crew, keep your chin up!
