Mount Rainier National Park Photo Gallery

One of our nation's oldest parks, Washington's Mount Rainier National Park is centered on its namesake, an active volcano that at 14,411 feet dominates the landscape for miles around. More than 26 glaciers radiate from Mount Rainier's soaring peak. Elsewhere in the park are subalpine landscapes and old-growth forests that have stood for anywhere from 100 to 1,000 years.
