E is for Extremes in Tacoma (abc Wednesday)

A very "touristy" photo but it was extermely scenic. Taken while wondering around in the early morning.
The extreme heat of the cone (Museum of Glass Hot Shop with furnace & theatre),
the extreme tension of the cables on the SR509 cable stay bridge, and
the extreme height of Mt. Rainier at 14,410 ft (4,392 m).
(Missing is the extreme roundness of the Tacoma ___?___.)

Give yourself another E for the extreme amounts of Rainier Ale I used to drink...   Glug, glug, glug...   Wow, could I pack it away...   That mountain was my favorite -- a million times over...
