The Jan. 9 “Our Valley” article by Tim Fitzharris and Donna B. Ulrich highlights the scenic route of Hwy. 706 on the west and south sides of Mt. Rainier as one of “Country Magazine’s” 10 most scenic routes in the U.S.
I find it interesting that while highlighting Hwy. 706 to Paradise on the south and west sides of Mt. Rainier, the beautiful large picture of Mount Rainier - supposedly at sunset - is taken from the Sunrise area on the northeast side of the mountain, exactly opposite of Paradise.
