"A 40-page illustrated booklet -- telling of glaciers, flowers, history, animals, and what to do and see in Mount Rainier National Park -- will be presented to each party of visitors at the following localitites: Longmire -- Park Museum and Administration Building; Paradise Valley - Community House and Ranger Station; Yakima Park, Ohanapecosh Hot Springs, and Carbon River Entrance -- Ranger Stations." Until you could pick up that 40-page booklet this little foldout would have to do. Published in 1938 by the National Park Service. Our favorite part is the map.
If you've followed us for a while you know we love the National Parks. Our favorite is Yellowstone but Mount Rainier is closest to home. How about you ... Do you have a favorite National Park?
