Mount Rainier National Park, Washington State

Photograph by SteveĀ Matera

Mount Rainier may be the centerpiece of the national park of the same name, but it is hardly the only attraction. Here, less than three hours' drive from Seattle, you can stroll through seemingly endless fields of wildflowers, listen for cracking glacier debris, and wander among trees more than a thousand years old.
