So I took my son along yesterday morning for a little hiking at Rainier for part of the Rainier 110 project. This is the 110th anniversary of Mount Rainier National Park and I’m celebrating by hiking 110 miles in the park. I’ll be posting dispatches here and in the paper.

So far I’ve bagged 56.9 miles.

Here are pics from the four hikes I did with my 8-year-old son, Alex.

1. Deer Creek Falls, 1 mile (Off Highway 123)

2. Grove of the Patriarhs, 1.5 miles (Near Ohanapecosh)

3. Silver Falls Loop, 3 miles (At Ohanapecosh)

4. Dege Peak, 3 miles (Between Sunrise and Sunrise Point.)
