WOW When James Longmire’s daughter-in-law, Martha, first saw this site, she exclaimed,”Oh, what a paradise!” This quote pretty much sums up most people’s reaction to this spot on Mt. Rainier. A trip to Paradise was my second trip up the mountain a couple weeks ago. It was planned as part of a family reunion outing. This part of the mountain is very accessible for people of most skill levels. The paths are mostly paved and not too steep or long yet the vistas are incredible.
