Whether you reached the summit or simply wish to preserve the memory of your journeys into the beautiful Washington backcountry, this Mount Rainier hiking stick medallion is the ideal way to commemorate your travels for all to see. In eye-catching metal, this hiking stick medallion will be an enduring Mount Rainier keepsake, gift, or souvenir.

Looming like an ice-lodged fortress over the valleys below, Mount Rainier is the most heavily glaciated peak in the contiguous United States. With an elevation of 14, 411 feet, it reigns as the tallest mountain in the Cascade Range.

With its vast permanent snowfields and deeply crevassed ice flows, Mount Rainier presents a significant challenge to even the most expert climbers. Of the more than 10,000 climbers who attempt to ascend Rainier each year, only half are successful in reaching the summit. Requiring precision skill, expert conditioning, and a preparedness for extreme fluctuations in weather, Mount Rainier demands absolute excellence from those brave enough to venture to her lofty heights.

The medallion depicts an image of Mount Rainier in all its imposing glory. Each medallion has a curved shape and comes with two brass nails to ensure it can be quickly and easily secured to any hiking staff. Minted in a brass alloy, this commemorative medallion is given an antique finish.
