Washington - Mt. Rainier

Mount Rainier

It's Washington's tallest mountain.

A view of Mt. Rainier's Nisqually Glacier, one of 26 on the mountain. You can see the moraines on the glacier - where it looks like the glacier is theading its way between rocks, in fact the rocks are being carried along the glacier. Each moraine is a collection of rocks scraped away by the, errr, glacially slow motion of the ice against the mountainside.

Narada Falls, still in the Mt. Rainier park, tumbles dozens of feet over pure andesite lava flows.

The eastern side of Mt. Rainier; all the photos above this were from the southern side.

Chinook Pass, the eastern entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park along Highway 410.
