Mount Rainier National Park (Day 43)

I went over to the “Paradise” portion of Mount Rainier National Park. Took some pictures on the way, and hiked up nearly 5000 feet of elevation in about 5 miles to Camp Muir, a base camp for summiting Mount Rainier. Quite possibly one of the coolest hikes ever. I’m totally bringing my snowboard the next time I do it.

Reflection Lake lives up to it’s name a few times…

Mount Adams

Mount St. Helens

This is the glacier i climbed up, one foot at a time, slipping every once in a while, and don’t take too big of steps…

That’s the “Paradise” visitor center at Mount Rainier that I started at

Don’t fall into the crevasse. Man it was kinda scary, went down 30?50? feet? I don’t know, didn’t get close enough to find out.
