MRNP Flood Damage

Not to keep harping on this but the flood damage is so devastating, particularly at Mount Rainier National Park. This has already become the wettest November on record for Seattle, and is very close to becoming the wettest of any month at all. And there's more storms coming.

These photos are from the National Park Service for MRNP. I am very glad that I spent so much time there this fall, because it may be a year before some of these roads are open again.
