Mount Rainier

Indian Henry's Hunting Ground via Kautz Creek is a tough hike in Mount Rainier National Park that winds through stunning scenery. The park says "near the trailhead there is evidence of the Kautz Creek flood of about 70 years ago with boulder fields and many large dead trees still standing. At Indian Henry's, meadows are generally in full bloom from mid -July through August. Fall colors are impressive generally from mid-September into October." Mount Rainier has plenty of camping available. Cougar Rock Campground is located in the southwest section of the park, Ohanapecosh Campground is in the southeast, White River is in the northeast section and Mowich Lake is a small tent only campground in the northwest section of Mount Rainier.
