The mountain has been in ruins all winter and spring after the major wind storms we had hear late fall early winter of 2006. The roads are open now and although some of the campgrounds have been washed away completely it's time to get back to Mt. Rainier and discover it all over again. There are to many things to do here to count, hiking, biking, fishing, mountain climbing and skiing down the mountain once you've reached the top. We took a trip back in 2005 and stayed in a secluded campground right on the river and had the most amazing time ever! If you plan on visiting 3 or more times buy the seasons pass when you enter the park, it pays for itself and find out what it's all about!

Equipment: Be sure to bring warm clothes for the evenings, its cools down alot when your in the trees. Plan on plenty of bug spray, especially if your down by the water and any gear you'll need for your adventures.

Directions: About 2 hours South East of Seattle.
Theme: Hiking

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
