Behold! Nearly a year in coming, our pictures from visiting Mt. Rainier are finally here. We wanted to take the kids to see a mountain – a big mountain – and Mt. Rainier clearly qualified.
One of the very first attractions I visited on moving to Seattle was Snoqualmie Falls. Snoqualmie was always a go-to attraction when we had visitors and it remains one of my very favorite places to visit. In the rainy season the entire falls can be a wall of water while in the summer only the center comes thundering down.
Last weekend I volunteered at the Twin Peaks Ultramarathon. The race is practically in my backyard, taking place in the Cleveland National Forest around Saddleback Mountain. The course is scenic but brutal. The 50 mile race has 17,000 feet of total elevation gain!
