Our biggest snowfall last night has closed schools, courts, and offices for the first time in a few years. It seems appropriate to visit some snow scenes from Mt. Rainer National Park.
The glacier carved valley on the southern slope of Mt. Rainer leads up to the what remains of the glacier today.
Paradise averages 54 feet of snow a year, and fog keeps the peak of Mt. Rainer hidden.

New snow at Christine Falls made getting to a view to photograph a bit challenging, but well worth the trek.
