Updated on September 7, 2014

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).

      Beautiful photos! I just wrote a hub about The Majesty of the 3 National Parks in the State of Washington and was happy to include a link from your hub into mine. Will be a nice addition. Voted up and beautiful.
