Mt. Rainier – Day 2

August 7, 2009

Today we hiked the most beautiful trail we have ever seen. 3.5 miles of beautiful mountain views combined with a continuous show of wildflowers. The wildflowers we identified were Broadleaf Lupine – blue, Pasqueflower Seedhead – white, Magenta Paintbrush and Rosy Spirea – red, Arrowleaf Groundsel and Smooth Mtn Dandelion – yellow.

“This trail is one of the most popular hikes in the park. It is 3.5 miles long and has 500 feet of elevation gain. It provides hikers with breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier and subalpine flower fields.”

Wow. It looks like a painting!
I especially like the ones of Grandmother on the trail… I think it was the 9th and 10th.
