Mt Rainer with a touch of wild flowers

The winter has just begun, but I am already longing for the clear sky. At least the occasional sun breaks would be good :)

It was one of those clear days at Paradise section of Mt Rainier. When I first started reading about the national park prior to visiting, it took a while to grasp that any places would be named “The Paradise”. After visiting, I should completely concur – words fall short of the experience. Paradise – have nature trails – paved, short, family friendly and suitable just for everyone. These trails lead through colorful meadows and offer spectacular mountain vistas. Several classic views of Mt Rainer are nestled out here. One with Myrtle Falls in the foreground, as it tumbles 70 to 80 feet thru the George, is pretty impressive. A few meters from here, just before the wooden bridge is another of my favorite view – The Majestic Mt Rainier adorned with the Edith Creek. May be someday will get there for some lovely twilight :)

    • Thanks Michael ! Yes is indeed such a peaceful place. The park is actually accessible only for couple of months accounting to snow. In peak winters it has a completely different feel :)
