We drove all night long from sunset to sunrise
found ourselves going through the most delightful little towns, and dreamed about living there.
On the road to the Beast. On a clear day you could see it from here (actually, the locals say you can even see it from the city), looming over you.
Had to add this picture since I made Matt drive back out of the park to take it :)
Mt. Rainier is overflowing with lush beauty (Carter Falls)
We had a wonderful time prancing through the park. We stopped at all the easy side attractions (here at Christine Falls), wishing we had more time to do MORE, much more.
Water is just flowing everywhere you looked.
Lunch at the visitor center. Where our jaws dropped when we saw where we were on the map. It was magical and very mysterious to be on such a beast and never be able to see it since it was totally covered in clouds. I still can't get over it.
Braving the snow. We are already in the works planning our trip back. Can't wait to mountain goat this place over.
