Mount Rainier

David Richland, Oregon, US:

"This picture of Mount Rainier was taken on 18 December 2004. "It has been a very dry year here in the Pacific Northwest.

"So far, the snow pack is 79% below normal, and we've had unseasonably warm weather this winter.

"In a normal year, all of the surrounding mountains in these areas would be white.

"Most of the ski resorts are closed now, when it should be peak season."
