Mt. Baker or Mt. Rainier for wildflowers
« on: May 23, 2017, 12:32:37 PM »

I'm planning a trip to Washington State in August and was wondering which of these two locations would be better for wildflowers with the peaks in the background. I plan on remote camping so I am close to the flowers in the morning and evening. Any trails or locations that exhibit a large flower bloom would be appreciated. I'm thinking the 2nd week of August.

thanks.

I'm planning the same trip at the same time and decided to try Mt. Rainier first. This will be my first visit and after doing some research it looks like the first week in August should be a good time to go. I know the bloom is different each year so hoping my timing is correct. I'm going to focus on the Paradise area at first and then try to get some local advise. Good luck.  :)

I believe wildflowers peak in mid August around Mt. Rainier. Checkout https://visitrainier.com/wildflower-hikes/
