Mt. Rainier National Park


I had an amazing day driving around Mt. Rainier National Park with Doc, Pop, and K.  By the way, I'm bringing K to Crossroads tomorrow night, so any Eastside Stitchers reading this, you will get to meet her, and Pop is coming to the Mariners Stitch and Pitch on Thursday.

Anyway, back to Mt. Rainier.

We drove about 2 hours to the south entrance to the national park,

then followed the road up the mountain and about half way around to the north side, where we then drove home.  We left at about 10 am and got home at about 5 pm.  We did not stop that often, and we didn't hike at all, as Pop wasn't up to it.

We saw lots of trees.
We ate lunch with friends.
We saw lots of waterfalls.
There was snow on the summit of course, as Mt. Rainier has permanent glaciers.
But, there was also snow on the side of the road and where we ate lunch.
The weather was just about perfect.
Doc drove, so I was able to work on my Tour de Sock stage 4 socks.  I am almost at the toe decreases.
