#257. Mount Rainier.

  17.5 x 29.5, oil on canvas. "Gilbert Munger" lower left. From James Terry Gardner, a member of Clarence King's United States Geological Exploration of the 40th Parallel with Munger, through the family to the current owner. The view shows the west side of the mountain with Puget Sound in the foreground. A newspaper article of 20 Sep 1872 mentions that Munger was at Steilacoom (WA), which is very near to the place depicted here. #257 and #303 are other Mungers of the mountain. Image from owner's photograph.
