Description

Ascending to 14,410 feet above sea level, Mount Rainier, the tallest mountain in the Cascade Range, stands as an icon in the Washington landscape. The mountain's landscape undergoes a dramatic transformation in winter. Its colorful subalpine meadows and lush old growth forests are draped with a thick blanket of snow. The sometimes dusty appearing glaciers are freshly covered in white. Most of Mount Rainier's roads are closed for winter. To capture this view, with ice-covered Tipsoo Lake in the foreground below the mountain, one needs to ascend Chinook Pass.
