Mt. Rainier Wildflowers 6/27/2018

Mt. Rainier National Park reports

Currently Blooming

Sunrise is open! The Sunrise Road provides access to the subalpine meadows on the eastern slopes of Mount Rainier. This area of the park tends to be drier than the western slopes and has a different mix of wildflowers. This year the Sunrise area is melting out faster than the Paradise area and many wildflowers are already blooming. One of the stars is, of course, magenta paintbrush. Its hot pink color really stands out!
