Having a majestic mountain view can become common place to those who see them daily.
Here on the outskirts of the British Columbia city of Abbotsford,
a farm has views across the border of Mount Baker (10,781′)
in Washington state that are sweeping and beautiful.

Having grown up between the western Washington towns of Auburn and Kent,
on what we called the west hill,
I daily, (or at least as weather permitted)
saw the stunningly beautiful 14,411′ glacier covered Mount Rainier.
Washington state has four active volcanoes in the Cascade Mountain range,
Mounts Baker, Rainier, Helens and Adams.

It is possible for people grow accustomed to views,
even gorgeous ones and don’t really ‘see’ them anymore.
But as one person who has been blessed to live in their shadow life long,
and see their variety of moods and colors nearly every day,
I can tell you I never tire
of a brief glance up from the road
and say to myself,
‘Wow, look at the mountain this morning (or afternoon).
: : :
I am thankful I can say I still marvel at their beauty.

What about you,
do you have a beautiful view
you never take for granted?
