We just got back from another road trip! This time, to Mt Rainier National Park. My folks came to visit last weekend, and we drove to the mountain and stayed in the lodge at the top (well… the lodge is about a third of the way up the mountain, but it’s as far as you can get with a car). The weather was… wet… but the park is absolutely gorgeous, nonetheless.
I mean, look at it! It’s absolutely stunningWe spent the day hiking around, checking out waterfalls and finding tiny wildflowers. (We even spotted a fox and a few deer-but they were too fast to get a picture.)And, in the evening we hung out in the lodge, playing cribbage and playing the ukulele. It was absolutely delightful.
Unfortunately, the road to Rainier is narrow and twisty, so I wasn’t able to make that much headway on my Road Trip Socks (dang motion sickness!). I had hoped I would be able to finish them last weekend, but it looks like I’ll just have to keep working on them at home. Oh well- we still had a fantastic trip.
Have you spent any time in National Parks? Which is your favorite?
