Snowfields to cross - could be difficult

Always such a thrill to be on Mt Rainier. .  Always a long day from Mill Creek, WA. By the time you stop for this and that and ohhhhh pizza sounds good . . 14 hour  day. But always so worth it! It’s one of my favorite day hikes in Washington State. Trail is almost snow free to the top of Alta Vista. “Route n snow” is about as perfect as you will get going to Muir. Multiple glisade chutes on the way down. . Not concerned with “times” anymore .  . Buttttt I think it was a personal best at 1:37 on the way down. Wild flowers will be in full bloom on 7/20/18 in the Paradise area.
