My Mt. Rainier Vacation -- Part 1

Spending 5 beautiful, sunny days on Mt. Rainier with Katney this summer was quite the experience. This is the second time I have been to Mt. Rainier with her camping. This time, there were 5 of us: Katney from Katney's Kaboodle and her hubby; Martha from Martha's Musings and her hubby; and ME! I used a tent
while Katney and hubby enjoyed sleeping in their their Little Guy trailer and Martha and hubby had a neat van camper, complete with everything including hot water!

Growing up, I was a Girl Scout and later, a GS leader for many years, so am used to tent camping and enjoy it. This time I also helped cook by making Fajitas our first evening there and Breakfast Burros one morning later on.

After setting up camp, we went for a short hike at the Trail of Shadows and then hung across the street around taking photos of this deer

and the sunset over the mountains in Longmire by the National Park Inn where two ladies were playing autoharps on the veranda and others were just watching the deer and sunset from comfortable chairs. . . I took photos of the ladies but they did not turn out well so won't share them.

What absolutely beautiful shots! I love your photo of Mt. Rainier...the snow on it looks great.

You're a brave soul, sleeping out in a tent. My idea of camping is sleeping with a window open!

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
