Mt. Rainier Nature Notes

Even if you never lead a tour to Mt. Rainier, you should learn basic facts about the National Park because you will get questions from guests. And, of course, you should cross-merchanidize this tour, persuading people that it is a outstanding way of spending a day during their visit to the Northwest. Mark Duzcik brushed up on his facts before his first MR tour of the season (today) by reading Nature Notes which tell stories of the park's naturalists over the years.

Interesting note: this week Mark M. and Bryan D. did a scouting trip to the park. At the Cougar Rock pullout, they looked up and saw a mountain goat. Click on this page of the Nature Notes for a 1929 sighting of the same. I wonder if they are related.
