Radio Story from Mt Rainier National Park

One of the Seattle National Public Radio affiliates sent a reporter to check out how the reconstruction was going inside Mt. Rainier National Park as they get ready to reopen to the public. As you've probably seen a few times on this website, Rainier suffered extensive damage from a storm back in November that wiped out roads, campgrounds, and more.

The reporter, Liam Moriarty, travels around with a park service interpreter named Lee Taylor. Taylor was on duty during the floods, and she's got a few choice stories to tell about the event, including her own death-defying drive through a debris flow. The program is 5 minutes 17 seconds long, and is told well. The audio format is MP3. If you've got the time, have a listen at the KPLU website:
