Welcome to Middle School Science. I'm Mr. K. and I will be your Science cruise director. I am the guy in the middle of the back row. We are at 12,000 feet on Mt. Rainier in Washington state. I made a climb on Rainier in June of 1999. I was much thinner and in better shape back then. (but still good lookin') As you can see we are above the clouds and that is Mt. Baker in the backround. Mt. Rainier is an active volcano and considered to be the most dangerous volcano in the U.S.
