Mount Rainier – Photos

Next on our list for the great wet state of Washington was Mount Rainier. It has the word “rain” in its name after all, why should we have been surprised to find 2 days of rain when we visited. The 14,000 foot volcano, still snow capped, hid itself in the clouds for nearly our entire stay, but we enjoyed the forest and the waterfalls.

We stayed at a private campground nestled in the grandly tall pine trees – hold on, nestled is perhaps too dry sounding of a word. Let’s try – huddled in the trees with droplets poised on every needle. It was a beautiful forest setting, complete with skeeters as Ali has taken to calling them. [Stay tuned for a post about all the other disturbing linguistic impacts that are taking place.]

For now – enjoy the rainy, grey photo tour of Mount Rainier.
