Photos from Paradise Campground

The Paradise Campground tour is through the old abandoned campground at Paradise, Mt. Rainier. It is an area that is seldom skied. It has has relatively flat terrain, but also contains a few small hills. This area is three eighths of a mile in length, about a fifty acre area with open glades and gentle slopes forested with sub alpine fir. The tour winds through the three distinct sections; the main campground, the overflow campground and the radio tower hill. It also has a great view of the mountain when visibility permits. In the photograph below you can see the dramatic presence of the Mountain and very few tracks.
