Mineral spring, Trail of Shadows path, Mount Rainier National Park, June 2005. The trail has some relics (stone facades of buildings) from an earlier period when the area offered hot spring baths.
I arrived at Mount Rainier, the last stop on this trip, late in the evening. I was able to catch a ranger talk that evening and the next two evenings also in the Paradise Inn - they were excellent. The Paradise Inn was a nice large lodge. During my stay the weather was overcast all but the morning I was leaving still I enjoyed several hikes including a couple ranger lead walks.
