Mt Rainier National Park

A few weeks ago, Tiffany, Etta, my brother Jason, and I went on a roadtrip around the Pacific Northwest in Washington State. The first day of the trip was spent driving through Mt Rainier National Park. We left Portland fairly early, drove up I-5 to Hwy 12 and headed east, then north on 7, and into the park on 706. We entered the park through the West Entrance, drove up to Paradise where had lunch and spent time, then drove down the east side.

I had seen Mt Rainier before, usually from a distance while driving I-5 through the Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia area, but had never been to the park. Seeing the mountain from a distance, it is actually fairly impressive, but seeing up close is amazing.

We stopped to take photos at quite a few different spots on the way up and on the way down.


Here are some photos from the day,
