Sometimes you can get sky-high on this job.
Broadcast engineer and EAS activist Clay Freinwald shared this dramatic photo with friends and colleagues.
“From time to time I run have a chance to take a picture of something that I feel is worth sharing. This was taken on Sunday Jan. 13, looking northwest from Manastash Ridge, which is located on I-82 just south of the town of Ellensburg in central Washington state, on the east side of the Cascade Range,” writes Freinwald (who also
RW’s most recent Excellence in Engineering Award).
“Over here the thick forests of the Cascades and western Washington give way to lots of open space. Here you are looking over the Kittitas Valley, and the little town of Ellensburg, over at the Stuart Range. The highest peak in this shot is Mt. Stuart, which at 9,415 feet is the seventh highest in Washington state and the second highest non-volcanic peak.”
The photo was taken about 110 miles east of downtown Seattle; the temperature was about 20 degrees F. “That’s freezing fog in the valley,” Freinwald adds.
