Mt. Rainier Hikes
On Thursday, I hiked part of the Skyline trail from the Paradise section of Mt. Rainier National Park. It’s a very steep hike; I climbed 1200 feet in a mile and a half. But I think this is the most beautiful hike I have ever done. You are so close to the mountain that it is hard to get it all in the picture, even with a 28mm lens. The flowers and wildlife were great. Saw lots of climbers, both going up and coming down. Most go with guides.
Then on Saturday, Randy and I hiked to Berkley Park from the Sunrise section of the Park. I had done this hike two years ago, and it was as good as I remembered. Spectacular wildflowers everywhere!
