These loggers are taking a break to appreciate Mount Rainier. Sometimes you just have to. It takes your breath away — even for locals.

We take for granted how easy it is to get up in the hills and over the passes. On Sept 4, 1957 Stevens Canyon Highway was finally opened — 24 years after it was begun — linking the east and west sides of the mountain. In 1960, there was extensive flood damage throughout the Park, including a bunch chunk of Stevens Canyon Rd. (Fact Book About Mount Rainier.)
