Starting in early May, over 200 people arrive to work in Mount Rainier National Park. These people come from all over the world to spend the summer in the Park. These people live and work on the mountain. They are split between the National Park Inn, Paradise Inn, and Sunrise Visitor Center. The staff comes from different walks of life; the college students, the park bums, and the retires looking for something to do.
Happy Earth Day! Earth day was founded 45 years ago to celebrate the Earth. The giant blue sphere that is our home. In the excitement of celebrating, don’t forget to drink a toast John Muir. Yesterday, John Muir celebrated his 177th birthday. Happy Birthday, John! I know I am a day late, but its the though that counts.
