Shadows of the Past at Mount Rainier National Park

Saturday Aug. 18, Mount Rainier National Park will present Shadows of the Past, a “living history” program. Volunteers and staff in costumes will portray important individuals from the park’s past.
The early story of Mount Rainier and the National Park Service from 1883 through 1916 will be told.  Lead Rangers will guide groups along the Trail of the Shadows in Longmire. Historical figures will emerge from the darkness while volunteers with lanterns illuminate the scene!

The free program lasts about 80 minutes. Admission to the park is $15 for private vehicles.

Longmire is six miles east of the park’s southwest Nisqually Entrance.
Walks will leave (rain or shine) from in front of the National Park Inn at Longmire at 8:30 p.m, 8:50 p.m., 9:10 p.m., and 9:30 p.m..  Those attending should bring warm clothing, sturdy footwear, insect repellant, and a flashlight.
