So Beautiful

All three shots you posted from the west branch of the Wonderland Trail are so beautiful but somehow this one is my favourite. I wonder is that Rainier on all three? I guess it is since it is an isolated mountain. I still don't recognize it from every corner but I'll get to that point :-)

Re: So Beautiful

Thank you Velebit. This is the Sunset Amphitheater side of the mountain. This part of the park seems to get the least foot traffic. If you are ever looking for a multi day hike I would recommend this area.

Peaceful location!

Yes, I was here before in 1989, when I was a member of a NPS trail crew. Hiked all the way from Mowich Lake Road & Paul's Peak - beautiful day & PEACE-FILLED area. By the way, the "three summits on Rainier" are Liberty Cap, Colombia Crest & Point Success. There's also a silver forest or "ghost forest" here - created back in the 1930's by a runaway fire. It provided a good habitat for deer. Too bad the West Side Road got washed out, but that's the way Nature goes. GREAT PHOTO!
