In the Paradise part of Mount Rainier National Park the wildflowers are something to see! It really does live up to it's name. On this morning I was up early to catch the light coming off the mountain. There are plenty of trails in the area and I'd scouted out this location the previous afternoon. Finding this location in the dark is a challenge but the bugs where especially bothersome. The wildflowers start to peak in August but so do the insects. Nonetheless I was astonished by the beauty of Mount Rainier and its carpet of wildflowers.
