Where's The Best Place in Gig Harbor To Capture Mount Rainier?

Monday's sunny weather provided great picture-snapping conditions in the Harbor, although we probably won't get another sun-filled backdrop until the end of the week, according to the National Weather Service.

It's no secret that Gig Harbor provides a great backdrop for pictures, especially of Mount Rainier.

But on days like Monday, when the area is drenched with sun, there is an abundance of spots to capture the icon of the South Sound.

It got me thinking: Where do you think is the best spot in Gig Harbor to capture Mount Rainier?

Tell us your favorite spot in the comment section. Better yet, if you snapped a picture of the mountain recently, please upload it.

Speaking of temperatures, the National Weather Service recorded a high of 52 degrees Monday in Gig Harbor.

Here's the forecast for the rest of the week, according to the NWS:

  • Tuesday: rain likely, 47 high, 38 low
  • Wednesday: chance showers, 46 high, 37 low
  • Thursday: chance showers, 48 high, 40 low
  • Friday: sunny, 50 high, 37 low

Harbor Ridge Middle School parking lot. Great spot to see Gig Harbor Bay with Mt. Rainier as the back drop.

I don't think there is a "best" spot for viewing the mountain...on any given day, considering the angle of the sun etc. it's a crapshoot ;0)
