Hans Bluedorn, Nathaniel Bluedorn, David Rasmussen and sons Tyler and Dane climbed Mount Rainier on September 9-11.
The easy part.
Spending the first night at Camp Muir (named after John Muir) — situated at 10,080 feet.
Inside Camp Muir (Nathaniel: It was the most horrible place I’ve ever slept. Very cold. Very windy.)

An important, but time-consuming part of the climb.
Starting out while it’s still dark.
Here comes the sun.
I’d like to enjoy the view — but can’t breathe.
Don’t go in there. Sasquatch moved to Rainier this summer.
At the top.

Unidentified Rainier vegetation.
wow! Nathan should put his pictures in a book and sell them— beautiful!
Very impressive. I would love to conquer such a mountain someday.
Thanks for taking us on your adventure up Mt. Rainier. I live in Connell,WA which is almost 200 miles east of Mt. Rainier. And on a clear day we can see the top half of the mountain all the way over the Cascades here in Eastern Washington. Mt. Rainier is on Washington’s license plates too. Thanks again for the cool view!
do you guys know the vegetation for mount rainier?? i need to know it for a priject…
I want to climb Mt. Rainier, possibly next year.
I wonder were there any dangerous cravas or falls during your hike course?
I would appreciate if you e-mail me about the danger of the hiking course and advice.
