Mount Rainier National Park Spray Falls and Spray Park

Mount Rainier National Park: Spray Falls and Spray Park Professional Review and Guide

"This deservedly popular hike finds its way on a moderate walk through the woods to one of the highest and most beautiful waterfalls in the state of Washington—or anywhere else, for that matter.

Past the falls, a challenging 600-foot ascent in the next 0.5 mile leads to majestic Spray Park, a vast subalpine meadow on Mount Rainier’s northwest flank. In the spring, the meadow is a sea of wildflowers, complementing the wide views of the mountain and the surrounding landscape."

Amazing to see snow at the Mowich lake Campground in (still) 70F degree weather. :-) In any event, I wanted to get out to the Mowich Lake area, especially since they just opened the road (WA-165) on 4 July. It was a gorgeous day yesterday, and even though it was hazy further out towards the South Sound, it was nice & clear in the park, and views of Mount Rainier were brilliant from Eagle's Roost, and the sunlight dnaced off of the spray at Spray Falls. The Spray Park trail was relatively clear and dry, for the most part. Not much foot traffic, considering, but expect that to change later in the season. All-in-all, it was an excellent day!
