Learn park history at Mount Rainier

Mount Rainier National Park staff and volunteers will present “Shadows of the Past” Saturday night.

During the 90-minute program, individuals who shaped the historical legacy of the park will be brought to life along the Trail of the Shadows at Longmire. John Muir, Samuel Emmons, Fay Fuller, PB Van Trump and others will be portrayed by rangers and volunteers in costume. Led by rangers, the lantern lighted walks will depart every 20 minutes between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. from in front of the National Park Inn.

Visitors are reminded to dress appropriately for the evening’s conditions. The program will be held rain or not.

For information, call (360) 569-2211, extension 3312.
