Today we were off to see a mountain -- Mt Rainer -- up close! Washington is GREEN with lots of large trees and green shrubs. Remember last winter with weather reports of more storms in northwest? Well Mt Rainer received too much rain resulting in major flooding and lots of destruction as the creeks and rivers raged overflowing their banks.
Well it was a delightful drive, even with heavy clouds and a national park bus ride from Longmire to Paradise, but nary a mountain to be seen in the fog! And wouldn't you know it -- once we left the mountain, the sun broke thru the clouds and we could see the mountain from afar in Lacey, WA.
