camping & hiking: Mount Rainier National Park
I’m just back from a three night camping trip at Mount Rainier with my husband and another couple. This is our third National Park trip together. : )
We camped at Ohanapecosh and did a short day hike near our campground to see the Grove of Patriachs with old-growth trees and a super cool suspension bridge. The next day, we went to Paradise and hiked along the Nisqually Vista, Alta Vista and Skyline Trails, with a side trip to Myrtle Falls.
On our last day, it rained in the morning so we did a hike near our campground to Silver Falls and the Ohanapecosh Hot Springs. Then we headed to Sunrise for a short wildflower hike on the Silver Forest trail. The mountain was hiding in the clouds on this day so we’ll have to go back another time for more hiking at Sunrise.
It was a lot of fun sharing my love of Mount Rainier with these three! We’ve already made plans for our next National Park adventure to the Redwoods in northern California.
