Located in a valley in the northeast corner of Mt. Rainier along the glacial White River, Ranger Creek Airport has the highest elevation paved runway in Washington at 2650 feet. The airport is a fun challenge to land at when it's open in the summer, with a mix of terrain, trees, and density altitude considerations. From mid fall until mid to late spring, though, it's blanketed in snow and closed. In the background is Mt. St. Helens.

It's the white strip in the foreground - look for the straight line of trees along the runway.

I'd say airstrip or airfield instead of airport though

After ~30,000 saved photos on my HDD that took ~8.7 GBs of space I'm going to try smth other. For example to keep them here. Easier & faster.
