Bellingham, Fairhaven and Whatcom Falls – a Getaway

Even though the skies are choked with haze and smoke here in the Pacific Northwest, we still managed a little getaway to celebrate my birthday. One can’t stop living, right? We drove north to Bellingham, home to Western Washington University and home to many… Continue Reading “Bellingham, Fairhaven and Whatcom Falls – a Getaway”

A Hike to the Waterfall in the Green River Gorge!

We finally did it – took the trail down to the Green River Gorge for a close up look at the waterfall. It was a first for me though not for my husband; he spent a lot of time here in his younger days,… Continue Reading “A Hike to the Waterfall in the Green River Gorge!”

Ohanapecosh! A Day Trip to Mt. Rainier

Hooray For Camping!

Our first camping trip of the year. Finally. Not that we didn’t try earlier. It seems that pandemic camping is in. When things began to open up in late May our favorite campgrounds filled up quickly, without us. And last month, when we tried… Continue Reading “Hooray For Camping!”

Fishing at Mineral Lake and Mt. Rainier

Though truth be told, I just go along for the ride, Bob does all the fishing. Mineral Lake sits in the Cascade foothills near Mt. Rainier and Bob remembers coming here way back in the last century. I told you about that already in… Continue Reading “Fishing at Mineral Lake and Mt. Rainier”

At Paradise On Mt. Rainier with Hike to Myrtle Falls

For the past week or so I’ve been sharing with you the beauty of Olympic National Park, perhaps my favorite of them all. But a short visit to Paradise yesterday to see the wildflowers in bloom on Mt. Rainier left me breathless. And how… Continue Reading “At Paradise On Mt. Rainier with Hike to Myrtle Falls”

Ruby Beach at Olympic National Park

Even the name is beautiful. On our recent trip to Olympic National Park we stopped to enjoy Ruby Beach on Washington’s wild Coast. Kalaloch just south may be more famous but to me Ruby Beach is more beautiful and mysterious. We arrived and walked… Continue Reading “Ruby Beach at Olympic National Park”
