Mount Rainier National Park

Pacific Northwest, United States

Mount Rainier National Park feels worlds away from downtown Seattle, even though the park is a mere two hours from the city by car.  During the summer, wildflowers proliferate and dowse the park’s iconic meadows in brilliant shades of lavender, yellow, and orange – I visited in August and was fortunate enough to catch the flowers at their peak.  Despite the warm temperatures – eighty-one degrees on the day I visited – Mount Rainier is covered in snow year-round.

All of the photos in this gallery were taken from trails originating at the Sunrise Point Visitor Center, the highest vehicle-accessible point in the park.
