My national parks pass has been the best purchase of 2015. Today, I utilized the pass to visit the Grove of the Patriarchs in Mount Rainier National Park. I planned on making the short hike from the Ohanepecosh visitor center to the grove, but the visitor center was closed and parking insufficient. The very short, relatively flat hike, when taken from the trailhead just off of sunrise canyon road, is a great combination of old growth beauty and serenity. I'd never seen trees this big, and i doubt I ever will again.
