Road to Sunrise
I try and visit the Grove of the Patriarchs on the way. Dave and glacier meadows: Thanks for the confirmation. At least the driving won't be four hours of drudgery.

Sounds like beautiful scenery. We might try to rearrange our itinerary to cut down on driving elsewhere in our trip. Is regular sedan enough for the drive on the alpine twisty roads in MRNP? Or it's better to rent an SUV? You don't need any special vehicle to drive at Mt. Rainier in the summer.
An SUV is not an advantage on paved but twisty roads. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
