1." Out of the forest at last there stood the mountain, wholly unveiled, awful in bulk and majesty." - John Muir - Sunday afternoon 9-7-14 after setting up camp in Packwood, WA along Hwy 12 along the south border of Mt. Rainier Natl. Park, we jumped in the jeep and headed for the Stevens Canyon entrance to the park. Located at the southeastern edge of the park, the Stevens Creek Road leads up to Paradise where there is a visitor center and inn.
