In wet years like 2010, snow and ice linger long into the summer on the high country surrounding Mount Rainier. On a thruhike of the Wonderland Trail, I found Tahoma, or Mount Rainier and her lenticular crown reflecting in a mostly frozen Saint Andrews Lake, deep in the back country of Mount Rainier National Park. While Ice and snow were everywhere, the white Avalanche Lilies and White Heather were blooming along the south facing slopes on the shore.
