Mt. Rainier Part II

Our first full day up in Paradise we hiked the entire High Skyline Trail… up to the snow! It’s an ambitious five and a half mile loop with an impressive 1700′ elevation gain. The panoramic views! So much mountain today! And such blue sky… to compliment an intensely bright sun! We really gave ourselves over to it and went all in.  

Ach! I’m melting!
Snow!
Panorama Point: Southbound views for miles!

Mt. Rainier, classic and iconic: our high point for this year!
Hiking back down
One final rest stop!
