||August 15, 1931
Issued monthly during the winter months, semi-monthly during the summer
months, by the Mount Rainier National Park Nature Guide Service.
|C. Frank Brockman,
|O. A. Tomlinson,|
O, mountain that was God to Nature's child,
Gigantic miracle of Nature's hand,
What human words can paint thee as thou art?
Majestic, vast, pale, wonderful and wild;
In cold sublimity, a thing apart;
Chiding the follies of the human heart.
Before whom man is but a paltry clod,
Spreading the mighty base across the land
And lifting high thy crown up toward the throne
(From the poem "Mount Rainier"
by John Lamb.)
