Quick Shots: Mount Rainier National Park

Emerging RainierWinter is rapidly ending here in western Washington. Spring flowers are already blooming in my yard. But it isn’t quite over yet. Here’s a few shots from a snowshoeing outing I made earlier this month in Mount Rainier National Park.

    • Thanks Greg. It was a fun day. We went on a Monday and there were only a few other cars at Paradise – I’d never seen it that empty. In fact we were the last to leave and ended up on the wrong side of the gate at Longmire.

  9. Snow! I love snow but we usually only get a little once or twice a year, or sometimes not at all – like this year. Enjoy! πŸ˜€
