View north from Goat Rocks (8,300) over clouds in the Cowlitz River Canyon to Mt. Rainier (14,408) in Mt. Rainier National Park. The finest peak in the United States is clothed with 28 glaciers. The P.C.T. follows the summits above the clouds and traverses the east slope of the mountain at the tree line.
