A Day at Mount Rainier National Park

Just before our extreme heat wave in June, here in the Pacific Northwest, I visited Mount Rainier National Park. There was still plenty of snow covering all the trails at Paradise Meadows, and lakes were still frozen. As many times as I have been to this park over all the years, I have never seen so much snow still around in June. I was a bit disappointed that none of the trails were open yet, but I thoroughly enjoyed what beheld my eyes, nonetheless. With the temps warming up, rivers were running fast and high, and cascading waterfalls were plentiful throughout the park.
