Here's our first glimpse of The Mountain. It played hike and seek behind clouds all day. We wondered if it would ever completely reveal itself.
We were surprised to see snow along the Nisqually Vista Trail.
The views of the Nisqually Glacier and valley below from trail overlooks were breathtaking (and a little scary!)
This quote is engraved into the steps leading to hiking trails at the Paradise visitor area. (That's my granddaughter.)
Lots of other people decided to visit the park on Wednesday. The visitor center parking lot was full, and the overflow lot was more than halfway full.
The trail was steep and little girls can get tired.
But we were finally rewarded with Mount Rainier putting in an appearance. I overheard someone say they'd been in the park for three days and that was the first time they'd seen The Mountain.
