Ohanapecosh Campground in Mt. Rainier National Park

In 2006 Mt. Rainier National Park received 18 inches (45cm) of rain in 36 hours. Flooding damaged roads, infrastructure and changed the course of rivers. A 5000 ft (1524 meters) landslide (page 29) below Stevens Canyon Road dumped into the Ohanapecosh River near the Ohanapecosh Campground.

I would not have wanted to be here when this came down.

Things are looking up

Sometimes I like taking photos looking straight up – its not a perspective that is as often photographed. The forest overstory here is at the Ohanapecosh Campground in Mt. Rainier National Park.
