NATURE — Mount Rainier National Park is one of the region’s most gorgeous places to visit and hike during wildflower season.

Named the best wildflower spot in the U.S. by “Wildflower Wonders: The 50 Best Wildflower Sites in the World,” Mount Rainier National Park offers a bouquet of flowers in nearly every color of the spectrum.

The easiest “wildflower fix” in the park is day hiking the trails around Paradise Lodge in mid-July
