Mount Rainier itself is visible across most of Western and some of Eastern Washington. It is 14,410 feet (4,392 meters). Much of the park Is covered with virgin forests and unaltered wilderness. The mountain itself is what many people focus on however. It is known for having 26 named glaciers on its flanks and being the most heavily glaciated peak in the lower 48 states. It was also featured on the “Washington State Quarter”

    Hi Colin! Thanks for the postcard. I truly enjoyed looking at the newest waterfalls you've conquered. My favorites? I think I am going to have to say Silver Falls and Thunder Falls. Although you know, all waterfalls have a special place in my heart. :-)

    I've only seen a distant Mount Rainier itself while visiting family in Victoria, British Columbia in 1999. However, after seeing your views of Myrtle Falls and surrounding areas, it looks like I'm going to have to get much closer to see its true beauty!

    Your waterfall photos are great; there was 5 feet of snow at Paradise when I visited in June 2003, Myrtle Falls was still completely under the snow then.
