National park photography classes will take a big step forward in late August when Ian Shive, an award-winning photographer and author of The National Parks: Our American Landscape, conducts a live class over the Internet from Olympic and Mount Rainier national parks.
Mount Rainier National Park
A week of searching for a missing day hiker at Mount Rainier National Park has so far proven fruitless, prompting a decision by park officials to scale back the hunt.
Efforts to find a missing day hiker at Mount Rainier National Park moved into day four Wednesday with dog teams helping ground crews while searchers looked from the air, as well.
More than four dozen searchers were working at Mount Rainier National Park on Monday to find a 64-year-old hiker who failed to meet up with his son as planned.
A missing hiker in Mount Rainier National Park apparently has been found dead, though park officials were awaiting official identification from a coroner.
Rescuers at Mount Rainier National Park had little to work with Saturday as they resumed the search for a hiker missing since Wednesday
Washington state’s Puget Sound is a forested metropolis, braided with inlets and bays and ringed by steep, glacier-clad peaks. On the west skyline, the stately, wet Olympic Mountains grab moisture from the ocean clouds to nurture the temperate rain forest of Olympic National Park. To the east the queen-mother’s throne, nearly three-mile-high Mount Rainier, holds court on clear days in its namesake park.
A conference next month will discuss how the climbing community can leave an even smaller footprint on the world's peaks.
The three kids—my 12-year-old son, Nate, and 10-year-old daughter, Alex, plus my 15-year-old nephew, Marco—are slightly less than enthusiastic about our plan to hike the Skyline Trail Loop above Paradise, on the south side of Mount Rainier National Park. My 76-year-old mom, Joanne, normally an eager hiker, shuffles along this morning, still recovering from a long, hard hike up Mount St. Helens two days ago.
