Old Mt Rainier Gas Station

When Sunrise was first developed about 80 years ago they put in a gas station.  Can you picture the Model A & Ts driving up this windy mountain road?  We Northwesterners have wanted to see “The Mountain” for ages.

Not sure how long ago it was decommissioned but as you can see it has been quite a few years.  The snow and nature in general has done some work on the structure.   However, when I peeked in the window in the door I could still smell the fuel.
