Rainier Day 1: Hiking in Paradise

Continuing my coverage of my July 2016 adventures for Travel Tacoma and Visit Rainier...

Near the end of Day 1 in the Mount Rainier National Park, we stopped at the satisfyingly appropriately named Paradise, Washington, for some hiking and then a picnic dinner. The views were beyond description! And the weather for us was perfection, as the fog burned off Rainier just as we started on the trail. When you visit the park, Paradise is a must-see!
