Mount Rainier National Park, Washington: Paradise Entrance
Mount Rainier is beautiful ... when you can see it. It gets really cloudy there at times; I couldn't see the top from halfway up the mountain.
The Mount Rainier area is only about 1.5 to 2 hours away from Seattle. There are some nice waterfalls (Christine Falls is pictured) and outlooks on the road, and some great hiking trails. Hiking also is the best way to see the abundant wildlife in the area.
