What would summer in Western Washington be without a trip to Mount Rainier? This mid-century postcard shows a couple of park visitors marveling at the snow-capped mountain from the road to Sunrise.
Sunrise is the second-most visited spot in Mount Rainier National Park, and at 6,400 feet, is the highest point you can drive to in the park. Sunrise, located on the east side of Mount Rainier, boasts a log visitor’s center and is a popular spot for hikers.
The postcard above shows Sunrise Point, located at an elevation of 6,100 feet. On a clear day, it is possible to see Mount St. Helens, Mount Hood, Mount Baker, Mount Adams, and Mount Stuart from this point. Sunrise Point also offers views of Sunrise Lake, and the entrance to several trails.
