Mt. Rainier – Longmire to Christine Falls

Edit (2015) : I have a new post of some newer photographs of the Longmire area.

The Nisqually River is fed by the Nisqually Glacier on the southern side of Mt. Rainier. Heavy flooding in 2006 eroded the banks. I’m sure I would have wanted to be anywhere near the place when it crested.

Nisqually River just south of the Cougar Rock Campground. 9 exposures stitched – Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.
