One of my favorite jobs is answering the letters we receive from students, requesting park information to help them with their school research projects. Below is a snipet from a letter received this week.
Question #8: Is there precipitation on Mount Rainier?
Question #9: How's the climate on Mount Rainier?
Well I think that's enough questions! I hope you write back soon! Oh, by the way, my Dad climbed Mount Rainier and signed the big book at the top of the mountain! Do you know him? My Dad's name is Ben Smith.
Thanks in Advance,

I just about cracked up laughing at that.
