Quote 5 – That old Giant!

“If there is one thing above another in our famous Sound region that transcends all else in the way of adoration and homage it is Mount Rainier. That old Giant! How overpowered one is by its bigness and nearness, as the mists of morning clear away and its glistening, snowy form rises majestically before you–standing there so Sphynx-like in its immovability, so grand, so bold, so defiant, towering above the lesser hills around it!”
Beth Bell Higgins, Souvenir and Guide Book of Seattle–Twenty Third International Christian Endeavor Convention, July 1907
