Alpine Winter Wonderland

Uploaded by: PugetSoundPost

WA

Caption: On the flanks of Mt. Rainier, above Paradise (over 5,000 feet), winter has created a wonderful land of powdery pristine snow and charmingly bedecked alpine trees. Winter life is tough here but this bit of morning sun made it all so inviting to explore and enjoy.

Gorgeous shot! Brings back a lot of memories
when we lived in the Klamath Basin. It was
always beautiful in the Winter.

Congratulations on your AC.

Nice shot, lovely winter scene.

BTW, when I saw the thumbnail pic it reminded me of some photos I took while driving up Mt. Rainier. So thrilled when I saw the location!!!

Thank you, WTS, Vogelzang, DW, BC and Gardner! It really was winter at Mt. Rainier and such a different world from here, just a couple of hours away. But our temperatures are winter this week! Teens and hoping for a little snow, but it wouldn't be as pretty as the scenes we encountered on the Mountain.

Great winter scene! There's nothing else quite like fir trees drooping under a layer of snow.

So glad you got an AC, despite all the snow photos from back east this winter.

Thank you to all who have stopped by to comment and vote on this photo! Mr. PSP took this photo and was especially drawn to the interesting light patterns on the snow. It was a wonderful hike on the mountain!
