NP is Closed

Mt. Rainier NP is closed until further notice. The fatal shooting of a NPS law enforcement officer, news releases, and the search for the gunman will resume today (Monday January 2nd) in the area between Longmire and Paradise.

The NPS is reporting all visitors at Longmire have been evacuated and all visitors at Paradise were in a secure lockdown overnight in the Jackson Visitors Center until early this morning when they were escorted out of the NP. You can follow the latest NPS information on their Twitter account.

The area where the gunman fled has 2-3+ feet of snow at this time. Let's hope they capture him soon and let's pray for the family of the NPS ranger killed in the line of duty working for all of us in Mt. Rainier NP.
