Sunrise Point & Sourdough Mountains

View to the north from Sunrise Point in Mt. Rainier National Park. I did not venture this far into the park (from the Nisqually entrance) during my first trip to Mt. Rainier due to Stevens Canyon road being closed for repairs. Very different vegetation on this side of the mountain and at this elevation (Sunrise Point is at an elevation of 1860 meters or about 6100 feet).

Mt. Rainier from Sunrise

View of Mt. Rainier from Sunrise Park Road (maybe half way between Sunrise Point and the Sunrise Visitor Center). Was not too many minutes after I took this shot that Mt. Rainier was completely enveloped in clouds. This is likely categorized as a Lenticular cloud (Altocumulus lenticularis).
