Panorama Point, Mt. Rainier, WA (07/26/09)




This hen White-tailed Ptarmigan was its usual spot just below the intersection of the Lower Skyline and the Eastern Skyline Trail. There were also 4 cute little chicks with her.

On the Upper Skyline Trail, Gray-crowned Rosy-finches were common. Lots of youngsters begging for food.


Omnipresent is the Hoary Marmot on all the hikes out of Paradise. This guy was cooling off in the snow when it was getting hot.


I also saw a Mountain Goat (my first for Paradise) scaling a snow field, but it was from quite far away.
