Climbing Mount Rainier

On this day I hiked Mt Rainier solo from Paradise to Camp Muir(10,188 feet/ 3105 meters)for an elevation gain of approximately 5000 feet which is 1524 meters. The day was clear, sunny, and warm. Mout Rainier was big and fantastically beautiful - as a mere mortal, I was lucky the mountain allowed me the climb.

Enough said about my Mount Rainier climb. See the pictures below and the videos which humbly depict the mountain in it's majesty!
