Not to be missed. A beautiful view from any direction. The weather changes make for great photo opportunities. Plenty to see and do there, and not far from the Seattle area.

Visiting Mount Rainier National Park as well as taking one of the drives up to the mountain is a wonderful place with views to dream about. Make sure your camera has a long lens and you will bring back photo's that will be very memorable. If you are afraid of large drop offs on the road, just drive very carefully.... More

You have to see this place both in summer and winter. An active volcano area but a picture takers delight and climbers heaven. At 14,000 ft a must see when out in the Pacific northwest. Go via Crystal Mts. Ski area for best views.

I always give Mother Nature a 5 star rating. How could I not? However, I did not like this park as much as I have other national parks like Yellowstone or Glacier. The mountain is truly magnificent and hiking up around Paradise provided the best views I have ever beheld of any mountain range I have hiked. Yet, the park... More

Judging from the park map, it's only one giant summit and the lands around it is the whole park, but the park is more than that. Different trail and look outs decorated with all kinds of waterfalls, lakes and creeks. you could do either auto tour or series hiking. The scenery is never boring with rain forests and snow mountain.... More

OMG, Soaring Birds on thermal currents, I felt like I was standing in a football stadium covered with snow while birds glided on Thermal currents. I sat in awe of God's majesty as I gazed upon this amazing park. Beautiful and majestic are the only words I can use to describe it!

I wish I could come again here in summer time and do some hikes. We just drove by and made it to the Visitor Center in Paradise, roads were icy already, and most visitors came for skiing or snow shoeing. The views during the drive are really amazing.

We arrived at Mount Rainier National Park, after days of raining in Seattle. We are lucky to see the mountain under clear blue sky. The view at Paradise Valley is magnificent and we went for a couple of trails and the mountain simply looks gorgeous at different angle. The town near Mount Rainier provides tourists with a good view of... More
