Mt. Rainier Pictures

I've made three trips to the Mt. Rainier area so far this year--High Rock, the Mt. Fremont Lookout, and Grand Park. Check out more photos in the extended entry.

The first trip was to High Rock, which offers an excellent view of four volcanoes--Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood (which often fades in and out of the haze), Mt St. Helens (straight into the crater), and of course Tahoma right next door.

There was a little demon squirrel on the way back...

Shortly after that, I went to the Mt. Fremont Lookout with a friend, starting from Sunrise. I didn't take many pictures other than this fearless marmot,

but the views of Grand Park are spectacular from the lookout. So the next trip was there via Lake Eleanor. Here's the lookout from Grand Park

And the mountain again.

That trip was unbelievably buggy. But the forest is quite beautiful various things were popping up from the forest floor like the spruce and mushrooms here


Next trip... ???
