Description

We got up at 4am to drive all the way from Paradise to the other side of mountain. We were attempting to photograph Mt Rainier for a sunrise. It was cloudy when we left and I was nervous it would stay that way. And we had no idea how long it would take to drive that distance plus on top of that my buddy was driving the speed limit. I was hoping we would make it on time and not waste it. By the time the sun was just hitting the tops of the peak we just made it to the parking lot. The sun was already rising. I ran out down a trail half haphazardly in one direction and then another to find some wildflowers and an open vista. I'm sure it wasn't pretty but I was able to snap off some decent photos. Thank God the alpenglow takes longer up north. Then we spent the day hiking 11 miles of the trails near Sunrise. What an amazing place.
