Fleeting Paradise by iphelps Fleeting Paradise by iphelps
Receiving an average of 660 inches of snow each year, the subalpine meadows of Mount Rainier typically remain veiled under a thick blanket of snow until late July. When the summer Sun finally reveals meadows beneath, the dormant wildflowers spring to life, producing a spectacle of color. While the wildflower season is very brief, it is magnificent. The blooms peak in August and by the middle of September, the temperature drops and the snow often begins falling in the upper elevations. The flowers disperse their seeds and once again the meadows are buried under ice.

Paradise - Mount Rainier National Park, Washington
