Mt. Rainier

Another great fall weekend in the NW.  Today we decided to take a trip to Mt. Rainier, we were headed up to Sunrise and found that the road was closed so we decided to go to Paradise.  We found out that we are about 80 miles from PARADISE! 🙂  Just as we got to Paradise, the clouds starting covering the top of the mountian.  Another trip without seeing the top!?  We decided to stick around a hike a little more and to our great suprise, the clouds were thin and the entire mountain was in full view!  Lisl had never seen the mountain that close up!  It was gorgeous!  We hiked around for a few hours enjoying the gorgeous fall weather.  We saw about 4 skiers hiking down the mountian after a day on the slopes….next time, that will be us coming down with our skis!  The fall colors were in full bloom and snow is starting to stick to the ground.  Great day, just what we needed!  Enjoy.
