Wonderland Trail

In 2016, I hiked the 95-mile Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier in Washington State. The backpacking trip was a life-changing experience and I’ve felt a deep connection and reverence for Mt. Rainier (also called Tahoma) ever since. More information about Mt. Rainier National Park is at the following page: hiking in Mt. Rainier.
