I love Mount Rainier.
I long ago lost count of the times I hiked, camped, snowshoed, or just spur-of-the moment drove 210 miles in a long day to hang out on the mountain. Rain, fog, sunshine, snow: it’s all the same to me in my love for Rainier, this sacred ‘spirit of place.’
I am bewitched.
Even when Mount Rainier hides, it’s still a good hike. (Helen Holter, hiking toward Camp Muir, September 7, 2013)
Yup. Fair warning. (Hiking toward Camp Muir on Mount Rainier. September 7, 2013)
What a difference a day makes! Sunny Sunday on Mount Rainier, clear skies ahead! (Helen Holter on High Skyline Trail, September 8, 2013)
Almost heaven. At Paradise on Mount Rainier, sunset. (September 8, 2013)
