Join me on a quick backpacking trip up to Spray Park in the northwest corner of Mount Rainier National Park to photograph Mount Rainier reflected in tranquil ponds.  The wildflower meadows were in peak bloom, and so were the mosquitoes!

The mosquitoes are atrocious, but calm weather and warm evening light made for perfect reflections of Mount Rainer in subalpine ponds at 6100 feet elevation.  White heather, pink mountain laurel, and Mount Rainier lousewort (which is endemic to Mount Rainier) were in full bloom.
