ASHFORD, Wash. -- We were on a mountain pilgrimage to Paradise. That's where you will find the flower-strewn meadows at 5,420 feet on the southern flank of Mount Rainier, a big and imposing mountain that is the centerpiece of Mount Rainier National Park. Paradise, at the end of a long, winding road, is the No. 1 tourist destination in the park.
