A few weeks ago, with family visiting, we visited Crystal Mountain nestled just outside the NE corner of the Mount Rainier National Park.
Summer in the Pacific Northwest is absolutely gorgeous!
This view is free of charge and can be seen outside the park as you skirt the Steven's Canyon Entrance of Mount Rainier traveling North towards Crystal Mountain. Blue sky, green trees, sparkling white glaciers...
The view from the top was absolutely amazing. Totally worth the ride. Do you hear any singing?
Visiting Crystal Mountain is a must do. Just be sure to literally beat off the chipmunks, they will run all over your bare legs, into your pack, or onto your lap. They have no fear. You've been warned.
Have you had a chance to get to the mountains this summer?
