I'll post photos from our other adventures in the coming weeks.
(Click on photos to enlarge.)
|The area in the foreground is a gigantic slab of rock, covered in moss and lichen.|
Mount Rainier is snowy white year round.
|We took a short path through the woods to|
get a look at the water roaring through Box Canyon.
|Our young guest from Alabama was delighted by all the snow at Paradise.|
So strange to be playing in snow in shirt-sleeve weather.
The Official Mount Rainier National Park Service website says:
Paradise is famous for its glorious views and wildflower meadows. When James Longmire's daughter-in-law, Martha, first saw this site, she exclaimed, "Oh, what a paradise!" The park's main visitor center, the new Paradise Jackson Visitor Center, is located in the upper parking area. Paradise is also the prime winter-use area in the park, receiving on average 641 inches (53.4 feet/16.3 meters) of snow a year.
|The people on the right-hand side of the photo should give some|
scale to the depth of this overlook above Narada Falls.
|The Paradise Inn has been renovated, but|
it still retains its historic beauty.
