Paradise/Skyline wildflowers – MRNP

on August 10, 2013

To quote John Muir: “… the most extravagantly beautiful of all the alpine gardens I ever beheld in all my mountain-top wanderings.” He got it right, because the wildflower meadows around Mt. Rainier  are second to none that I’ve ever seen. Though the Paradise/Skyline area is crowded in summertime, it’s worth the crowds to see these wildflowers and incredible views at least once every summer. It’s so different seeing it melted out and blooming, compared to when I do this as a snow-shoe route several times every winter. Crowded? Yes. Worth it? You bet!!!
