Ascending to 14,410 feet above sea level, Mount Rainier stands as an icon in the Washington landscape. An active volcano, Mount Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous U.S.A., spawning five major rivers. The wildflower season on Mt Rainier is short but spectacular. July through August is normally the best time to see wildflowers. Subalpine wildflower meadows ring the icy volcano while ancient forest cloaks Mount Rainier’s lower slopes. The sub-alpine meadows around Mt Rainier have been ranked as the best spot in the US for viewing wildflowers, and one of the 50 best spots in the world according to experts.
