bolide by NWunseen bolide by NWunseen
after 1.5 miles and 2000 feet of elevation gain of misty fog and wildflowers blooming..i arrived to this spot.unfortunately i took too many pictures of wildflowers and the sun had just crested the hills..blasting the main drop with harshness. decided to make the trek up to Van Trump Park above the falls to look out from the top. well the snow covered and hid the trail probably..50 yards from the falls! did make it too the top..making my own path. and wow..what a gorgeous area..and all to myself :) spent some time making my way through the snow to upper comet falls for a gander..unfortunately the glacier of Mt Rainier could not be seen due to clouds..saw just a glimpse.


by the time i had made it to the top of the falls..the clouds had made there way up the mountain and totally obstructed the views :/ did stand on the rim and could see the river after the drop but vertigo set in and decided to step back just a tad.


did try to wait out the rising clouds but they just became thicker and thicker. did make friends with some whistle pigs before i made the journey back down. i arrived back at this spot and the clouds had sat just perfectly for me :)

traveling around the mountain my decision to not wait out the clouds was wise..one cloud sat on this area through the evening.


thanks for following me on my hike and day at mt rainier..hope you enjoyed :D

oh yeah..this is Comet Falls, Mt Rainier, WA :D
