Glacier-clad Rainier is one of North America's most beautiful mountains. It hasn't erupted for over a century but the summit crater still has a few active steam vents. In early summer the lower slopes come alive in a gorgeous display of mountain wildflowers. Rainier's glaciers have retreated considerably over the past two decades, an ominous sign of global warming.
