Textures of Mount Rainier

Art-Roundup-Mount-RainierMount Rainier National Park plunges 10000 feet from the volcano’s peak, down past alpine meadows flush with flowers, to old growth forests heavy with moss and age. Here are ten bark and wildflower textures I photographed at Mount Rainier National Park for you to use in your creative projects. I’m releasing these textures under a Creative Commons Attribution License – have fun creating with the textures of one of the Pacific Northwest’s landmark parks!
