Mount Rainier - Wonderland Trail Loop (Backpacking) Professional Review and Guide
"The famous Wonderland Trail, which completely circles Mount Rainier, is not only the finest long hike in Washington; it is considered by many to be one of the best in the world. The route provides a generous sampling of all the attractions in the Cascade Range including meadows choked with wildflowers, abundant and varied wildlife, old-growth forests, huge glaciers, impressive waterfalls, and scenic lakes.
What will leave an indelible impression on your mind, however, are the ever-changing spectacular views of Mount Rainier, the Monarch of the Cascades. This monster volcano with its mantle of ice presents a multitude of faces, all of them beautiful. Photographers will need to carry plenty of film."
