Paradise, Mount Rainier

July 7, 2007. First day of a two day trip to Rainier (can't spend a summer in Washington without at least one visit :). Finding a car to rent at the last minute turned out to take most of the day, so I didn't get to Paradise until 5 PM. Nonetheless, the timing did make for some great lighting, so I quickly went up to Alta Vista and Panorama Point and made a short stop at Narada Falls before packing it in to see sunrise at Sunrise the next day. (5 miles, 1700 ft. gain to Panorama Point, just a walk to Narada Falls)
