About Discover Nature
Discover Nature takes pride in offering you a personalized, safe visit to Mount Rainier National Park. I am one of the few companies with a Commercial Use Permit from the Park. This permit allows me to offer you hikes longer than 1 mile beyond a trailhead helping us get away from the summer crowds. This is a big plus during the COVID-19 pandemic. During these times with the Coronavirus, we will meet at Mount Rainier National Park rather than travel in the same vehicle. We have a variety of trail options that you can enjoy a personalized, guided hike. Your day will consist of a private tour once we meet at the pre-determined trailhead inside the Park. I can focus on your desires and help create lasting memories. We will take time to search for wildlife, enjoy waterfalls, photograph wildflowers and enjoy the beauty and peace this Park offers. I specialize in fully-guided, small group tours designed to maximize your time and experience at Mount Rainier National Park.

Diann was very personable and responsive. Asked what types of activities I wanted to do and tailored the trip to them. She is obviously passionate about Mr. Ranier and does lots of reading and knows alot of history.

Diann is an excellent guide and made us comfortable the entire day, as she led us through Mt. Rainier. We couldn't be happier with our trip. Our experience exceeded our expectations. Diann is very knowledgeable about the area and its history, and helped us experience the best of the mountain. I really can't recommend her tour enough. We will deft take her tour again for a different experience during the spring and summer months.

I recently went on a guided tour of Mount Rainier and learned so much while having lots of fun. Diane is knowledgeable and prepared. She had all the equipment we needed for a day in the National Park and lunch. I highly recommend.
