Magestic Mount Rainier

Hard to believe that even though I have lived here my entire life, I actually don’t recall ever visiting Mt. Rainier. I see its beauty every day on my way to work but never took the opportunity to explore some of the trails.  That changed in November 2016 when I made up my mind to go explore! Snow had already started falling up on the mountain so the top of the ridge-line was covered in snow.  The views are breathtaking. Even more so I bet on a clear day! Hundreds of hungry birds greeted us at the top, anxious to partake in some plain nuts we brought. The trail we took was roughly 11 miles roundtrip. Probably a bit too far without my training but we made it!  I’ve heard about reflection lake and quickly learned how it earned that name!  Although our day was cloudy and a bit windy, you could still see the reflection of Mt. Rainier perfectly in the lake. I’m definitely headed back there in the summertime as I know that will be a picture worth framing!!
