We decided to ride up to Mount Rainier. What a mountain to see up close.
Our ride into the National Park was interesting and Paradise was outstanding.
The mountain was right there and the scenery was amazing.
Lots of wild flowers and glaciers easily seen from Paradise.
Mount Rainier is an active volcano and you can see steam vents on the mountain.
At the Elks Lodge I noticed big siren alarms.
I asked what those alarms are for and it was explained that if Mount Rainier
explodes that alarm will sound. It takes about 30 minutes for the glacier water
on the top to reach Puyallup! He said, “if you hear the alarm, run.”
