Hiked in the Paradise Valley at the heart of Mt Rainier.   Another clear day.   The Tatoosh Range dominated the views to the south. The trails in this valley are steep and the higher elevation trails are still covered in snow, but a few wildflowers were popping up.  Saw a family of marmots playing in the meadows.  And greeted by a Doe and Fawn on the way back down trail.
