Trekking up Mount Rainier

Ouch. We have sore sore limbs & a bad sunburn. Well, husband has the bad sunburn… I just get more brown!

We hiked up Mount Rainier despite all the snow & fog. We also wanted to check out Mount Rainier Inn since renovations have finally concluded! I’ve never been there but husband’s godmother used to work there in the summers when she was in her girlhood. We decided to have a look at the renovations as well as see how far up we could hike Mount Rainier!

I imagine if we had proper climbing clothes, gear and more time, we would’ve attempted getting higher, but Anvil Rock was an excellent stopping point. Much, much higher than either of us expected.

Family Day at Larrabee State Park

My brother & I get our appreciation of nature from our parents, who for as long as I can remember, used to drag us on road trips to various mountains & waterfalls.

Today we got the family together & headed to Larrabee State Park!  This was the first state park created in Washington & is situated right along the coast on Samish Bay, just 6 miles outside of Bellingham, WA.
