Mount Rainier National Park Photos - Mid August Trip

Mt. Rainier from above Paradise

Middle August, 2012

This is a collection of photos taken by me at Mount Rainier National Park on my recent 5 day visit.

They mostly consist of the area of the park which views Mt Rainier from the Southwest and South sides.

All pictures are copyright D Shannahan (taken with Pentax K20D).
