Mount Rainier By Daniel Sarkesian By Daniel Sarkesian Mount Rainier National Park will soon be holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony to activate a new bio toilet at Cougar Rock Campground. A bio toilet is a high capacity electric Bio-drum toilet that is very simple to operate, the bio toilet can be used in any home using proven technology . This new kind of toilet purifies the waste making our environment cleaner. Mount Rainier was discovered by the Meso-Indian people of the Narfal Islands in their second exploration of the Pacific Northwest (assumed to have been around 200 AD). The initial belief, according to the ancient history of this tribe, is that Mount Rainier was nonexistent before 150 AD, causing geological historians to infer that massive geothermal events allowed Mount Rainier into existence. The mythological aspect to the mountain is that deep beneath the surface, lies a tunnel/staircase with conditions suitable to humans [ meaning that you would not disintegrate from the heat of the mantle , inner core or outer core ]leading to the center of the earth. This Meso-Indian assumption has neither been proven nor disproven, but recently, a series of miniearthquakes have led scientists to believe that there very well could be some sort of cave or even "tunnel" toward the center of the mountain. On March 2, 1899, Mount Rainer became the 5th National Park. [Mount Rainier is the most heavily glaciated peak in the lower 48 states.] said Wikipedia. Mount Rainer is one of the oldest National Parks in the country Mount Rainier has volcanoes and more than 26 glaciers Its height is 14,410 feet . About two million people visit the mountain every year. In that same year, ten thousand attempt to climb it and a little more than half succeed. At Mount Rainier National Park you can find glaciers such as Nisqually ,Cowlitz and Paradise. You can also find little water falls and Reflection Lake inside the park. Reflection Lake is a lake that will almost reflect all of Mount Rainier. glaciers Mount Rainier was the nation's fifth national park. Established by an act of Congress in 1899, Mount Rainier was formed because of volcanic eruption. You can find all types of glaciers on Mount Rainier. there is a volcano on Mount Rainier there for you can find igneous rock when the lava from the volcano cools it makes igneous rock and supposedly the mountain/volcano is made out of glaciers and igneous rock. If you dig down deep enough you can find Granite. Glaciers are freezing and thawing. Every time Mount Rainier erupts the lava cools down and makes igneous rock, igneous rock forms new land forms. That is how Mount Rainier is always changing. Feeding wildlife makes animals have aggressive animal behavior and can be harmful to humans. Feeding birds concentrates nest predators, harming young songbirds. Feeding animals in the park is not allowed and the fine is $100 . Global warming is a huge environmental issue. Glaciers are melting at a faster rate than normal and as the time goes by Mount Rainier will lose all its glaciers if we don’t do something about it.
