Photographer's Note

It's been some time since I posted a photo. Well, were are finally finished with most of the renovations and we just returned from a little trip to Mount Rainier National Park a couple of days ago and I am slowly going through all my photos.

This is my first photo from this area that I would like to share with you. Here you can see Mount Rainier from one of the trails at the Sunrise area.

About this photo: On our last day at Mount Rainier National Park we visited the Sunrise area which is located at an elevation of 6,400ft/1,950m. Up here are several hikes to choose from, we ended up hiking part of the Sunrise Rim Trail which was quite a nice hike with some uphills and downhills. The views of Mount Rainier were stunning and there was a small blue lake down below as well...which you can partly see in the photo.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you like this photo!

Some information about Mount Rainier National Park: Mount Rainier National Park was established in 1899 and has a size of about 235,625 acres (97% is designated Wilderness) and this includes Mount Rainier (14,410ft/4392m). Mount Rainier is an active volcano encased in over 35 square miles of snow and ice. The park contains outstanding examples of old growth forests and subalpine meadows.

Whether hiking on its flanks, climbing its summit, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on its slopes, camping along its glacier-fed rivers, photographing wildflower displays in subalpine meadows, or just admiring the view, nearly two million people go here to enjoy the grandeur and beauty of Mount Rainier each year.
