Mount Rainier National Park
Yesterday was a beautiful Autumn day, blue sky, sunshine and very little to do...The best!
So when my friend and neighbour suggested a spontaneous trip "up" The Mountain I agreed and there we went!
This national park was established on 2nd March 1899 and covers 950 square km of beautiful forests, including The Mountain, known also as a stratovolcano and 26 glaciers.
The alpine meadows were in full Autumn colours and the Narada (Hindu name for pure) Falls absolutely beautiful, my first since the Kegon Falls in Nikko national park , Japan a lifetime away it seems but always a fond memory.
John Muir once said: "Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."
How very true! This was truly a good day!
