....the Most Extravagantly Beautiful of all the Alpine Gardens.....John Muir

In 1889, John Muir described the alpine meadows in the Paradise area as "..the most luxurient and the most extravagantly beautiful of all the alpine gardens I ever beheld....

 

I think the meadows are beautiful too, although I have not visited as many as John Muir! I tried for awhile to get a shot of the steps without people on them and this was as good as I could get! There were a lot people visiting Mt. Ranier that day even though the mountain was covered with clouds.
