08/31/2009 Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington

This second visit to Mount Rainier National Park started on the far end (Sunrise) and continued back toward the Paradise end where we had been before. We should have arrived at Sunrise earlier (like, duh, sunrise) for the best lighting conditions for photo ops. The clouds started covering the mountain top in the early afternoon but we got what we could after driving all that distance. One specific comment is about the Grove of the Patriarchs. This part of the park had changed the most since I was last there 6 years ago. Large trees have been dying from old age or windthrow so unfortunately there were some key views missing which I was hoping to capture again. This album has been completed and no more photos will be added.
