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).
