Mt. Rainier in wildflowers

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Soaring massively with perpetual snow crowned on top, 4380m-high Mount Rainier does not have comparable mountains nearby, so we can see its splendor.

Mount Rainier has 26 glaciers, and one of them is the largest glacier of the whole US excluding Alaska. These glaciers are valuable to many cities nearby for drinking water, agricultural water, and more.

The biggest highlight of the tour of Mount Rainier National Park is hiking. There are countless hiking courses in the park, and each is classified according to the level of difficulty and time required. In the summer season, if you go to Deadhorse Creek Trail hiking course, which is about 2km long and relatively easy, you will have the opportunity to appreciate impressive peaks of Mount Rainier and enjoy wildflowers that embroider the alpine region.

Mount Rainer's renowned wildflowers bloom for a limited amount of time every year. The "peak" bloom for wildflowers is heavily dependent on weather and precipitation patterns, so accurate predictions are difficult. In most years, many flowers will be blooming by mid-July, and by the first of August the meadows should be very impressive. Frost can occur by late August, but even after light frosts the meadows continue to be very beautiful, thanks to changing leaf colors and seed pod development that take the place of colorful blossoms.

However, I take pictures and just to the left in the wild, but here is dangerous hiking trails(Moraine Trail). It has a steep ice cliff waiting for someone to step wildflowers that just because the Without the permission of park managers is that you do not receive collateral security.
