Mowich Entrance to Mount Rainier National Park

This entrance is announced by a wooden sign. The Tolmie Monument nearby commemorates the arrival here in 1833 of Dr. William Fraser Tolmie, the first white man to explore this area. The monument was dedicated September 2, 1933, in the presence of Tolmie’s son, Simon Fraser Tolmie, then Prime Minister of British Columbia.
