Mount Rainier

September 2013

Mt. Rainier is a 14,411-foot volcano

that stands 13,211 feet above the surrounding landscape.  You can see it from hundreds of miles away, on a clear day.

We went to the National Park from two different entrances, went on a few hikes and saw lots of streams

and waterfalls
big trees,
small animals
and birds

At Paradise, there's a lodge

that gets snowed in up to the roof in winter.

People used to go to Longmire

for the hot springs.

We saw some butterflies

and pollywogs
and fungi

More pictures here.  Videos of waterfalls here, here, here, here, here, here, here.  Streams here, here, here.  Butterflies, pollywogs, hot spring and hot tub in action.
