October 21, 2006, Camp Muir, Oregonian perspective
« on: 10/22/06, 11:07 PM »

I have lived in the PNW for five years during which I have visited Mt Rainier often. Yet each time I visit, I am awed by the volcanos grander and beauty just like the first time I saw it. This trip was no different. We were treated to splendid fall colors, views of rugged glaciers, and the watchful eyes of Adams and St Helens. It was a treat to ski on Mt Rainier again on Saturday. Aaron and I did the standard trip from Paradise to Camp Muir. Conditions were good.

We did catch St Helens blowing some smoke. Here's a photo. Soon we will be skiing that.  Smiley

Nice report Jeff! I can't wait to get out to Hood on Saturday (lots of studying for my professional engineering exam has kept me w/o turns yet this month, but the test is on Friday, so turns will commence on Saturday). I've been wanting to get up to Muir for a while now. How long does it take you to get there from Portland? I'm wondering how many hours/days I should plan on from the Eugene/Corvallis area of the valley. Also, is there a good place at Paradise to spend the night? Thanks,

Matt

Hi Matt - We usually plan for it take 3 hours from Portland to Paradise. Sometimes it'll take a bit longer; sometimes a bit quicker. An inexpensive place to stay close to Rainier is the Whittaker's Bunkhouse:

I've actually never stayed there, but my friends Ann & Andy use to.
