Day 17: Mount Rainer National Park


Sometimes the best laid plans are defeated by Mother Nature.

Rainer is a 14 000 foot volcano in southeast Washington state. You can see it for miles around.

We drove to the visitor centre and hiked straight up for a couple of hours. The view from Panorama Peak is indescribably beautiful.

Today we saw nothing. Visibility was 100 feet max. temperature was 10ºC and the fog was so thick it ws like walking through rain.

Yuck.

Started to clear up on the way back down. Natch’.

Seattle tomorrow.

Cheers,

Morphet.
