Mount Rainier is the highest mountain of the Cascade Range of the Pacific Northwest. Elevation is 14,411 Ft., its last eruption was in 1894. There was so much snow but the roads were clear & there were several waterfalls flowing down the rocks (at various points in the park). The sights were exceptional & Mount Rainier is so majestic...its so amazing. We kept stopping & taking photos, Pete would even stop in the middle of the road so we could get our best shots (lucky for us we got there early enough that there was little traffic).
