Mt. Egmont: "If you can see the mountain, it is going to rain. If you can't see it, it is raining." I visited a friend's family just outside of Stratford. This was the view from my window, sometimes. Most of the time, the volcano was hidden. (On my next trip, we only saw the mountain when we were standing on it. )

I was lucky enough to hit Stratford during the Rhododendron Festival.
