This was my third Road Scholar program and the best ever! I highly recommend this adventure so santer, don't walk and sign up! The breathtaking scenery and beauty of Mt. Rainer and Mt. St. Helens is truly majestic, the wonderful guides that I learned so much from, the cozy accommodations complete with elk grazing right outside morning and night, the delicious food, and the revitalizing of the soul in today's instant gratification world were just what I needed! And all the other participants were tops too! I give this program 5 stars!

what a beautiful trip! Ken and Mark showed us the perfect spots in and around Mt Rainier. They also are a great team together!

If you like wildflowers, this is the trip to take. Even John Muir said: "In all my mountain wanderings, this place has the best wildflowers, an alpine garden." I agree. His remark is posted at the Paradise steps.

Be prepared to be amazed and awed by the vistas and energized by the hiking. Challenges are there or not for you to decided. the scenery is breath taking..Rainier awes and amazes no matter how many times it is seen. It is a gasp and an "oh, my!"..every time. And the story and the beauty of Mt. St. Helens is astonishing - a cataclysmic event in our life time -so intimately recorded.
