Grove of the Patriarchs

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.

Ohanapecosh River Bridge

At long last I have been going through and processing the photos from my 2nd trip to Mt. Rainier National Park in September of 2009.
