This is Rhododendron albiflorum, or White-flowered Rhododendron, which I've only seen twice before. It was growing on the Klahane Ridge trail and conveniently labelled by park rangers.

from the Greek: rhodos, "rose", and dendron, "tree")
Rainier Vista Trail 1155, Pierce County, Washington, USA

Sorry, picture is not very good. This is a white flowered shrub in a tiny meadow at 4,300 feet in the Olympics.
There isn't a Wikipedia article or redirect titled 'Rhododendron albiflorum'. Perhaps you'd like to make one?
