Flower Update For Mount Rainier National Park!

Mount Rainier from the Naches Peak trail.
Have you been out to see the flowers at Mount Rainier yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?  There are lots of great showings right now!

Tipsoo Lakes are sporting an excellent show right now - probably peak.  Yakima Park at Sunrise and Berkely Park are also rocking the look, with peak probably happening later this week, based on what I saw last Saturday.

The Naches Peak Loop trail is looking very nice right now.  I would guess peak is still a few days away - maybe by this weekend.

Grand Park still looks very nice based on reports I've received, but is on its way out as one would expect.

If you are a fan of avalanche lilies, Spray Park or Lake Eunice is for you!  The Paradise area is also offering a carpet of white as most of the snow melts.  I would guess Paradise and Mazama Ridge are still on target for their prime show around the second weekend of August or so.

I hope this helps in your planning!  If you have any additional beta, please feel free to share.  Hope to see you on the trail!

Edit 8/1:  The park web site is stating flowers at Sunrise have indeed reached peak!
