Each time I visit Mt. Rainier, I can't get over how unspoiled, how pure it looks, feels, and smells. It's a truly mesmerizing place, full of life and seeming to have a soul all its own. So it was no surprise to me that the word "Narada" has roots in spirituality. I won't get into that, as there are many differing beliefs on the matter and the origin of the word. What I will say is that I believe that everyone who has ever laid eyes on this fall must have felt its powerful captivation. Though it's a heavily visited fall (which is sometimes a deterrent for my spending too much time there), it didn't take away from the magic for me.
