Skyline Trail '15, Mt Rainier National Park, October 4, 2015 page 1 / 14
Libby and I took a quick trip to Mt Rainier National Park, hoping to catch another glimpse of this year's autumn color in the mountain foliage. We were not disappointed.
We chose to hike the Skyline Trail out of Paradise. About half of the trail is above treeline, so there wasn't a lot of color, but the lower sections were spectacular.
Just minutes into the hike we encountered three deer: two does, and young buck.
