I am posting this observation mainly because we have observed Cascades frogs at the big meadow of Spray Park over many years. Obviously, this population is well established. There were also baby frogs at this location on 9/26/17. The elevation is 1784 m above sea level.

Cascades frogs in tarn on Nisqually Loop at Paradise, Mt. Rainier Ntl. Park. The tarn was still surrounded by snow. It also held long-toed salamanders.

In previous years we had seen tadpoles in the same tarn later in the season.

Egg masses not counted - noticed only after the fact when editing photos. One photo shows 5, but there were definitely more.
