ALSO AVAILABLE NOW!  "The book (Hiking the Wonderland Trail, by Tami Asars) als
o takes the mystery out of planning such an involved trip, through 90 miles of backcountry and covering 20,000 feet of ups and downs. It cuts a swath through the bureaucratic red tape of obtaining permits and tells how to have food caches waiting along the way. It also suggests 7 to 14 day camping itineraries from the three main start/endpoints: Longmire, Sunrise and Mowich Lake. Buy the book and maybe you won't be putting off this dream circuit of Mount Rainier for another year."
