To the people of Washington State, the 14,411-foot Mount Rainier is a symbol of natural beauty. The park on which the mountain stands, and which was also*named after the stratovolcano, was first established on the 2nd*day of March, in the year 1899. It is considered one of the five oldest national parks in the United States.*

You will often see Mount Rainier covered with clouds, but surrounding it below are beautiful valleys, waterfalls, and up to 26 glaciers. This is perhaps the reason why people love to climb the beautiful mountain. The first woman to ever climb Mount Rainier was Fay Fuller, who scaled the mountain in the year 1890. Today, more and more people are showing interest in climbing the mountain, all for the fun and enjoyment of seeing such beautiful scenery that surrounds it.
