I woke up this morning with nothing to do. The prospect of hanging around the house all day again made me want to scream. Sure I had things I should be doing but who’s interested in that? So I decided to go get an annual Mt.Rainier pass and go wander the Sunrise park side of the Mountain. All I can say is wow! I’m sure I’ve been here before but probably not since I was a little kid. I had no idea just how close I was going to get to the mountain!
At the entrance with Goat Island Mountain in the background.
My first stop was sunrise Point. This is the view from the parking lot. My jaw was on the ground!
This will work
Doesn’t it almost beg you to wander up?
So many flowers… and bugs. Fortunately hornet free! Those guys are viscous this time of year!
I have never seen hot pink indian paintbrush!!
Can someone please tell me what this Dr. Seuss looking plant is?? It drives me nuts! I love it!!
The woods cleared up and I was tired. but I was so close to that perfect pic! So of course I pressed on. I’m so out of shape!!
Yay! That is a great shot! Annnnd I’m done!
(not sure why it doesn’t look super clear right here but if you click on it, you’ll get the full effect)
After getting back to the car I felt it only right to go check out the Visitor center at the top. Lovin the log cabin look!
This reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials for some reason lol
Great day! Can’t wait to go back!
