The Nisqually Glacier itself was a bit of a scenic disappointment.
And hard to believe this is the beginning of the robust river that pours into the Puget Sound at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge just over 80 miles away.
From Paradise, there's also a picture perfect view of the Tatoosh Mountains.
We also toured the Grove of the Patriarchs. Passage to the Grove is over this fun suspension bridge.
Yep, the "Patriarchs" are big trees (random child posed for perspective).
