Paradise on Earth

Paradise is the name of the area on the south of Mount Rainier in Washington, United States. Mount Rainier is one of the snowiest places in the USA, but during winter, as the snow melts, the snow transforms into beautiful waterfalls and wildflowers bloom all over the mountain. Spring transforms the arid snow into a flower paradise, turning the mountain into one of my favorite places on earth.
