The roads in Eatonville this weekend were packed with people taking a drive up to Mount Rainier, a popular past time for over a century.

Here are a couple shots of folks taking the trip around 1920. Looks like the view at Paradise hasn’t changed a whole lot.

  1. The car is a Packard from about 1915. Packard built cars
    in series, not model years, with running changes until a new
    series was introduced.
