Extravagant Garden by iphelps Extravagant Garden by iphelps
Regarding Mount Rainier's grand flower-filled, subalpine meadows, renowned naturalist John Muir once stated the following: "Every one of these parks, great and small, is a garden filled knee-deep with fresh, lovely flowers of every hue, the most luxuriant and the most extravagantly beautiful of all the alpine gardens I ever beheld in all my mountain-top wanderings."

In late summer, the subalpine meadows around the Paradise area of Mount Rainier erupt with vibrant, kaleidoscopic wildflowers. On this August morning, a lenticular cloud hovers atop the Rainier's peak as the first rays of light flood Mazama Ridge, revealing the vibrant purple Subalpine Lupine and red Indian Paintbrush.

This is mesmerizing! I kept staring at the field of flowers at first, which is absolutely beautiful, but then I noticed the cloud around the top of the mountain: Perfect. Seriously stunning.
