  • We had great time exploring the area although the weather was far from being perfect. It was actually quite chilly and the light drizzle turned into a downpour. Fortunately for us, the visitor center was opened so we spent half an hour around the cozy fire. They offer a selection of interesting books and maps - it’s worth looking at if you are a nature enthusiast like myself.
  • I visited both visitor centers (Sunrise and Paradise) , spent few hours in each of them. And I'm totally recommending both : Sunrise is the highest point that can be reached by vehicle at Mount Rainier National Park. On clear summer days, Sunrise provides breathtaking views of Mount Rain. Paradise is famous for its glorious views and wildflower meadows. and it is the park's main visitor center.
