yesterday, we took a day trip up to Mount Rainier National Park
... a great place to stay-cation in Western Washington ...
|The Mountain - with the beginnings of a hat cloud at the top|
|wildflowers emerging from the snow|
|Sunrise Lodge with Mt. Rainier in the background|
|why does someone climb a mountain? because it is there|
|a young bear looking for better berries on the other side of the road|
|mackerel sky, mackerel sky, not long wet, not long dry|
I just realized that Mount Rainier (Ray-Near) is spelled Rain-ier
as in "it's rainier here than anywhere"
... well not so much in the summertime ...
