I spent couple days in the park hiking Mt. Rainier. It is a very beautiful mountain and park. The different types of eco systems that exist within the park is astonishing. Even if you don't plan on getting out of the car, it is still worth driving through the park and seeing the beauty. The weather turns very fast in... More

You can't spend all of your time in front of a computer screen in SLU. You need to get your butt out of the office, and away from that Microbrewery you inhabit in Old Ballard. Get OUT of town... and go see something awesome!

With only 1 day at the park, we thoroughly enjoyed the views, the hikes, and the visitor center. The wildflower meadows in Paradise are outstanding. We enjoyed Christine Falls and Narada Falls. But the forests are so lovely that even stuck in traffic shortly after entering the park, we joked that if we had to be in a traffic jam... More

Mt Rainier is always a favorite. Whether it is spring flowers or fall colors, the scenery is beautiful. Reflection Lake is a great spot.

I believe this was a trip of a life time. To go to Mount Rainer and watch my grand children play in the snow was simply priceless. It is a park at its best. There is so much to see and so much to learn. To me it was simply something I can mark off the bucket list.

My husband and I cannot get enough of Mount Rainier and all the sights it has to offer! We revisited this summer after discovering it two years prior. We camped far up the mountain near the snow base, campsite was at the end of a long gravel road. Love the views and the towns nearby.

This was an amazing experience! I used RMI Expeditions to provide guide service on this 2 day climb, and it was totally worth it. Watching the sun rise through the clouds from 13,000 feet was incredible, although freezing cold.

This mountain will take your breath away at every corner of the road or hiking path. So much to see and do that a day is not nearly enough to properly enjoy it. The drive from the entry to Paradise is beautiful any time of year. And the vistas from Paradise are awe-inspiring. Take your time and don't feel rushed,... More

Rising majestically from the lowlands surrounding Puget Sound to the height of 14,410 feet (4,392m), this mammoth, still active volcano dominates the horizon for many miles. In fact, George Vancouver named it for his friend, Rear Admiral Peter Rainier, in 1792 when he spotted if from his ship while exploring the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Puget Sound. Mount... More
