After our time at Mount Adams, we made our way to Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park.  On my last visit to Mount Rainier, quite a few years back now, I left without a single photograph of the mountain.  In fact we barely even saw the mountain in the 5 days we were in the park.  Plagued by torrential rain and even some flooding around the park, I left defeated.  Not a single image.

This time around things were different.  It was sunny and warm.  Too sunny as it turns out.  It's pretty difficult to make interesting landscape images without a single cloud in the sky.  Not a wisp to be found.  We did, however, have a pretty fantastic time hiking and exploring the park.  Lots of wildflowers, bears and mile after glorious mile on the trails.

So what's a girl to do when you can't get the shot during the day?  Stay up all night.  That's right. I figured that if the clear skies were going to make it impossible to get any interesting shots during the day, I'd take advantage of the clear skies for some night sky photography.  Next up...Rainier and the Milky Way...
