Being from the West coast of Canada, the “old growth” forest at the Grove of the Patriarchs in Mt. Rainier National Park did not really impress me a lot. Still, it was a nice walk to the grove. I think that this area might have been a bit more stunning before the flooding rearranged the area – a sandy forest floor was not really what I was expecting.

I like your photos from the Grove of the Patriarchs. There are so many different textures. I was there eight years ago on a family vacation. We were walking along the boardwalk and a photographer took a picture of our family for some magazine, although I’m not sure which one. This year I hope to take my wife there since she’s never been. Thanks for sharing the photos. It gets me excited about going again.
Yeah I love MRNP too! Thanks for your comment. I have to get back there sometimes this year too – want to hit it in full wildflower season – mostly been there in the fall so far.
