Picture Frame Falls – Mt. Rainier National Park

I have just returned from my second journey to Mt. Rainier National Park. Luckily this time the weather held and I enjoyed nice days for the vast majority of my trip. I even managed to get up to Sunrise this time out.

This second trip at the end of September 2009, I returned to this spot where the road inside Stevens Canyon crosses Stevens Creek. Apparently there is no official name for this waterfall though I see it called Picture Frame Falls, or Stevens Fork Falls. No waterfall this time – apparently it is a spring melt phenomenon – which might explain the lack of official name. This is how it looked in early July 2009:
