People probably started hiking on Mount Rainier the day the found out there was a mountain.

Here’s a postcard  of hikers in the early 1900s on Paradise Glacier (Little Nisqually Glacier). This particular glacier has been receding over the last 100 years. Today it looks quite a bit different from this shot.
