Comet Falls / by Dave Hileman

We were in Washington state three or four years ago and were able to visit Mt. Rainier National Park. The centerpiece of the park is the magnificent mountain that seems to loom over every vista but there is so much more. This was a short hike of about 2 miles with an excellent waterfall at the end. Comet Falls shoots off the side of a mountain and then crashes down in a cascade of water over three or four smaller drops. These two occur near the bottom.
