Exactly a month ago today I visited Mt. Rainier with my boyfriend – about a 2 hour drive up through backcountry roads. When we arrived Paradise was shrouded in fog, and I was worried that we wouldn’t be able to glimpse the mountain. As we began our trek up the Glacier vista trail from Paradise, we ascended above the cloud line and the scenery was spectacular. I studied the mountain extensively in college, and it had been about 3 1/2 years since the last time I’d visited. Seeing the mountain up close again was like meeting up with an old friend.
Of course, I brought my camera with me and snapped some photos of the trip and I just uploaded them into my “Nature Excursions” album on Flickr. You can click this link to take a peek: 9/27/14 Mt. Rainier photos.
