So things don't seem to be staying the same for very long around here these days. The new snow from last week is melting fast under the rays of sunshine and beach-like weather on the upper mountain. The DC is not only back "In" it is taking a very direct line (not just for September either) to the summit. Crowds are thinning but stoked climbers can still be found all around Rainier.
Keep an eye on the weather before you head up since it can be a bit fickle these days, but there are many reasons to take advantage of this mellow time of year all around Mount Rainier National Park.
We look forward to seeing you up here.
