RAINIER 110: Early Season Waterfall Hikes

So we launched a new project this morning: Rainier 110.


This is year marks the 110th anniversary of Mount Rainier National Park and we will commemorate the anniversary by hiking 110 miles in the park this summer.


I’ve got 16.9 miles down so far, which almost all of the trails that aren’t covered with snow. In fact, a couple of those mile were over the snow.


There are five waterfalls that can be reached fairly easily right now. And they worth the trip right now because they are raging as the snow melts.


Here are pics from my hike last week:


CHENUIS FALLS



IPSUT FALLS



RANGER FALLS



CARTER FALLS



MAD CAP FALLS
