Mt. Rainier: RMI Guide JJ Justman Checks in from Climbing School

These are the days that I really love being a mountain guide. Sharing the beauty of Mt. Rainier in September can only be understood by experiencing the beauty of Autumn on Rainier.

The wild flowers are popping in full color. The marmots are whistling. And despite marginal weather, the low marine layers really make the mountains appear luminous and majestic.

The photos don’t do it justice so get off the couch, push yourself away from the desk and get on out here!

Janet & Peter, Random says 4 hooves up for the summit tomorrow!  Resting and relaxing at home, Gretchen says “I could have done the first 17 miles with you!”  We are hoping the weather will be perfect and that you enjoy your climb to the top in the morning.  Cheers!!!
