Paradise is located at about 5,600 feet, approximately a mile above sea level. It receives an average annual precipitation of 600 inches per year. During the winter of 1971-1972, 1,172 inches of snow fell, which is a world's record. At least it is according to the nps website.
Little Tahoma is a huge pyramidal satellite of Mt Rainier standing just to the east. It rises to 11138 ft/2802 m. Best climbed from Summerland to the east or from Paradise, you cross both the Cowlitz and Ingraham Glaciers. It is about 10 hours from Paradise. Rotten rock awaits.
Again, not the summit of Ranier, but a lookout on a nearby mountain. On a clear day, it is possible to see the North Cascades from here.
