Mount Rainer

Blue lupine and red paintbrush

I love living in the Pacific Northwest. Close to mountains and the ocean. We recently day tripped to Mt. Rainer. The flowers were in full bloom!

Mount Rainer's renowned wildflowers bloom for a limited amount of time every year. The "peak" bloom for wildflowers is heavily dependent on weather and precipitation patterns, so accurate predictions are difficult. In most years, many flowers will be blooming by mid-July, and by the first of August the meadows should be very impressive.
