Last year we visited Seattle and Mount Rainier National Park...very beautiful. We also took the Empire Builder train back to Chicago and would recommend the train ride just to see the beauty of the land and the view of Glacier National Park. There is a little known photographer who took photographs of Mt. Rainier National from 1908 to 1915. His name was L.G.Linkletter. The University of Washington in Seattle has an extensive collection of his photographs. L.G. Linkletter sold his photos at the park to visitors and tourists. His photographs captured much of the way our parks were at the turn of the century...very beautiful and pristine. I believe an article about L,G, Linkletter would be a very interesting to the readers of National Parks Magazine.
Mount Rainier National Park is just an hour’s drive from Seattle, but it feels much further away. Enjoy hiking, scenic drives, and even mountain climbing in this untouched wilderness.
