Mount Rainier National Park
Located in the interior of Washington state, Mount Rainier National Park was established in 1899 as the fifth national park in the United States. Its area is 953 km2. The dominant feature of the park is its highest mountain, Mount Rainier, with a height of 4392 meters above sea level, after which the entire park is named. The mountain is the highest point in the Cascade Range.
Mount Rainier, also known as Talol or Tahoma, is actually an active multi-peaked stratovolcano. The peak is formed by two volcanic craters, both of which are 300 meters in diameter. The eastern crater is slightly larger than the western crater. The volcano is located about 87 km southeast of the city of Seattle. An extensive network of glacial caves has formed under the mountain, which are full of glacial formations and stalactites. In addition to them, 26 of the most important glaciers are also protected in the national park. Mount Rainier is, for most of its area, a heavily glaciated peak with a total area of glaciers and year-round snow fields. The largest glacier is the Carbon Glacier.
In the western crater of the volcano, at a depth of more than 50 meters below the ice, there is also a small lake, which is thus the highest lake in North America. The lake is only accessible through an extensive cave system. The mountain was very popular with climbers and alpine tourists. However, climbing Mount Rainier is very difficult because it climbs the highest glaciers south of Alaska. Every year, roughly 8,000 to 13,000 enthusiasts attempt the ascent. Most of them go to the top via Camp Muir on the southeast side of the mountain and it takes 2-3 days to reach the top.
In the national park, a number of hiking trails of various levels of difficulty are prepared for visitors. The park also boasts deep valleys, waterfalls, meadows with alpine plants, forests with centuries-old trees and untamed wilderness. In the park, lovers of cycling will also come to their senses, as the 150 km long Wonderland Trail awaits them here. It leads around the entire top of Mount Rainier and thus offers access to relatively remote areas. You can also enjoy cross-country skiing or snowshoe trips in the countryside. The most attractive location of the park is a place called Paradise located on the southern slope of Mount Rainier. It is a site with the historic buildings Paradise Inn from 1916, Paradise Guide House from 1920 and Henry M. Jackson Visitor Center from 1966.
