Park Rangers later arrived at the scene of the stop, they said they had tried to contact the defendant and he had said he didn't like police and had been at rallies earlier in the day.

The first link is well written and a good story.  Crazy to come around a corner on a trail and see a knife wielding maniac who's not happy to see you!

If he was driving a Ford Windstar van (with the hood up or down) at 50 mph in the immediate vicinity of LaGrande (which is actually on WA 7, not 706 at that point) he clearly either had a death wish or is simply crazy.
Good example of why our mental health institutions need adequate funding.

Looks like he damaged a toll booth at the Nisqually entrance.  Maybe Mt. Rainier is free for a while while entering from the Nisqually side.

Mental health issues are very challenging to deal with.
