“Watch the flames from afar if we must, but don’t let our vanity convince us we can be the savior. Man as savior, pinned to two trees in the shape of a cross is an invention of man’s mind just as surely as the natural world isn’t. Embrace not knowing and accept our failure. It’s the natural conclusion of the American Conservation Movement: true conservation. Trees will fall and they will make sounds, even if we aren’t around to hear it.” (x)
Went on a hike today and caught a lesson from nature (on some avatar shit lol)

Going back through all your memories of Mount Rainier, do you remember your favorite sunset?
Now this can actually be a tricky question, because you first have to decide is your favorite sunset from inside the park or outside?
Some folks swear by scenic spots on the western half of the park. The fire lookouts do have pretty big, sweeping views of our favorite mountain. There are also many places along the Wonderland Trail where you might have glimpsed the mountain at sunset too.
But hear me out. Some viewpoints outside the park are pretty awesome for sunset too. Have you stopped at Dogwood Park, just north of Eatonville on SR 161? You can see all three summits from there. Three cheers for Kerry Park in Seattle for getting the Space Needle next to Mount Rainier. How much more Pacific Northwest can you get?
What is your favorite sunset memory of Mount Rainier? Do you think the best sunset view is inside the park or out? ~ams
