This workshop currently has 5 spaces remaining. Full Registration is 1495.00 - A 50% Deposit is required to reserve your space with the remaining 50% due no later than May 1st, 2020.

Mount Rainier National Park is a United States National Park located in southeast Pierce County and northeast Lewis County in Washington state. It was established on March 2, 1899 as the fifth national park in the United States. The park encompasses 236,381 acres (369.35 sq mi; 956.60 km2) including all of Mount Rainier, a 14,411-foot (4,392 m) stratovolcano. The mountain rises abruptly from the surrounding land with elevations in the park ranging from 1,600 feet to over 14,000 feet (490 - 4,300 m). The highest point in the Cascade Range, around it are valleys, waterfalls, sub-alpinemeadows, old-growth forest and more than 25 glaciers. The volcano is often shrouded in clouds that dump enormous amounts of rain and snow on the peak every year.

This scheduled 3 day in the field workshop will be held the second week in August based on my years of experience photographing the park during the wildflower season. Even in less than monumental years or when the season comes earlier than expected, there is still an astounding amount of breathtaking photographic opportunities in the park during this time including spectacular views of the mountain at every turn, waterfalls, old growth forests, rivers, streams and lakes. 

We will be meeting at paradise lodge the morning of the 14th, to begin a short hike just before dawn and the workshop will conclude just after sunset on August 16th. The closest major airport to Mount Rainier National Park is the Seattle Tacoma International Airport(SEA). This airport is in Seattle, Washington and is approx 80 miles from the Nisqually entrance to Rainier National Park. Transportation to and from the park, hotel accommodations, entrance fees and travel during the workshop are not included in the registration fee for this workshop. Those interested can email me directly for my food/lodging and travel recommendations. Once registered, you will receive a greater detail of information about the workshop, the places we will be visiting, the expected conditions and all of my gear recommendations specifically tailored to this workshop. Light to Moderate hiking on uneven surfaces will be required and some hiking may be considered strenuous for short periods of time and by those less experienced. We will not be going on any extreme or back country hikes on this workshop.

This workshop is limited to 6 people and is expected to be one of my most popular of 2020. If you are interested, I suggest you do not delay in signing up. To register, a 50% deposit is required with the remaining 50% due on or before May 1st, 2020.

Eternal Beauty

Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 - Mount Rainier National Park is a United States National Park located in southeast Pierce County and northeast Lewis County in Washington state. It was established on March 2, 1899 as the fifth national park in the United States. The park encompasses 236,381 acres (369.35 sq mi; 956.60 km2) including all of Mount Rainier, a 14,411-foot (4,392 m) stratovolcano. The mountain rises abruptly from the surrounding land with elevations in the park ranging from 1,600 feet to over 14,000 feet (490 - 4,300 m). The highest point in the Cascade Range, around it are valleys, waterfalls, subalpine meadows, old-growth forest and more than 25 glaciers. The volcano is often shrouded in clouds that dump enormous amounts of rain and snow on the peak every year.

Emerald Whispers

Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 - Ruby Falls is located where the original Longmire-Paradise road crossed the Paradise River (just below the falls). As Paradise evolved a loop road was built – that project involved moving the bridge over the river to the top of the waterfall. Apparently this old roadbed can still be seen below the falls. Ruby Falls, like other waterfalls that appear on old maps, has been mostly forgotten. The waterfall begins as a 21-foot cascade above the SR 706 Bridge (Longmire-Paradise Road) then plunges 31 feet below the bridge.

Stone
Fine Art Limited Edition of 100 - Mt. Rainier is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, and it is on the Decade Volcano list. Because of its large amount of glacial ice, Mt. Rainier could produce massive lahars that could threaten the entire Puyallup River valley, and poses a grave threat to the southern sections of the 3.7-million-resident Seattle metropolitan area.

Greater Than You
Fine Art Limited Edition of 100 - On March 2, 1899, President William McKinley signed a bill passed by Congress authorizing the creation of Mount Rainier National Park, the nation's fifth national park. It was the first national park created from a national forest. The Pacific Forest Reserve had been created in 1893 and included Mount Rainier. It was enlarged in 1897 and renamed Mount Rainier Forest Reserve. John Muir had visited Mount Rainier in 1888. Muir and nine others, including Edward Sturgis Ingraham, Charles Piper, and P. B. Van Trump, climbed to the summit in what became the fifth recorded ascent.

The Sweet Smell Of Summer
Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 - The Tatoosh Range is a mountain range located in Mount Rainier National Park and the adjacent Tatoosh Wilderness in the state of Washington, in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. The range runs roughly east–west, beginning with the southeastern Moon Mountain and concluding with the western Rainbow Mountain and Eagle Peak.[1] The range includes 25 prominent named peaks. The peaks average nearly 6,420 ft (1,960 m) in summit elevation, with the highest, Unicorn Peak, measuring at a height of 6,971 ft (2,125 m). Visitors to Mount Rainier can view the range from the Paradise area, and the range is popular with hikers.
