The Rifftides staff wishes you a Merry Christmas, a splendid holiday season and happy listening.

The bonus winter scene is of the magnificent Mount Adams in southwestern Washington State, about 60 miles away and easily visible from Rifftides world headquarters.

    Thanks for the mountain. That’s one thing I miss about not being in the Pacific Northwest… when I was a kid in Kirkland, we had a view of the Olympics out our living room window across Lake Washington, and out the bedroom window we could see Mount Rainier. Of course, not on cloudy days, which we had a lot of. But those two mountain ranges are spectacular. On my flight home when I got out of the army, our plane traveled right up the Cascade chain, with a perfect view of Mounts Hood, St. Helens, Adams, and Rainier. Living out here in the Hudson valley, the river is broad enough at the Tappan Zee to remind me of Lake Washington, but the mountains are old and worn down to nubs.
