I recently had the chance to climb a part of Paradise at Mount Rainier with some good company on a spontaneous early Saturday morning trip. Fun stuff.
While we were tremendously under prepared with our low top sneakers and didn’t expect to reach the summit of Panorama Point, our perseverance paid off with the snowy views of the surrounding area.
We followed the ~5 mile roundtrip with a short ~2 mile walk down a trail that ultimately led to an uneventful campground but I managed to snap some nice forest photos along the way. All in all a fun trip.
