NPS Photos of Mt Ranier Damage

I put this up on ADK High Peaks as well. Here is a link to a pdf file posted by the National Park Service. About 47 photos of major damage to the park. Don't plan on hiking the Wonderland Trail real soon. It looks like these folks have major construction to do.

It is slow loading but amazing pictures.

Boreal, that is just a small part of it. On nov 6-7 twenty rivers flooded wiping out many areas from B.C. down to Oregon. A real mess and I had the Wonderland Trail on my plans for next summer, a hundred mile loop around Rainier. The forest service said forget it. No way all the trail bridges will be replaced.

Wow, those photos are really amazing. Great document. Was anyone hurt during this disaster? I could only imagine what it would have been like if you were camped out there with no way out! Thanks for posting this... I had not heard of such a thing. That dried river bed was impressive. Hard to believe if that's where the water wanted to go, it had not established that route long ago?
