Back to The Mountain! Last week my husband I spent a day at the Paradise area of Mount Rainier National Park. But there was so much more we wanted to see. So, this past Thursday we decided to go there again and visit the Sunrise area this time. That section of the park is much closer to our home, and for one reason or another, we hadn't been there in years. I'm so glad we went. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
|Welcome to Mount Rainier|
|As is often the case, Mt. Rainier's peak remained shrouded in|
clouds all day. Lots of wildflowers were in bloom. (A future blog post?)
|People enjoying the overlook shown in the previous photo.|
|Me, catching my breath.|
|We stopped at this scenic overlook on the way down from Sunrise.|
Still can't see Mt. Rainier's top!
|Same overlook as in the previous photo but we're looking a different|
direction. That's the White River running across the middle of the
picture, and a road running diagonally up the mountain across
the way. (We're guessing it's Highway 410 to Paradise.)
|We stopped at the White River Campground on the way back|
down from Sunrise. Still can't see Mt. Rainier's top.
I took 62 pictures in all during our day on The Mountain! If you're curious about Mount Rainier and would like to see webcams of the area, click HERE.
