A Day trip to Paradise with Moonrise Over Mt Rainier

Every trip to Mt Rainier promises something special and so it was on Monday as we headed south to Paradise. We arrived at the Nisqually Entrance to the Park, the only one open to vehicles year-round. We had lunch at Longmire where visitors had… Continue Reading “A Day trip to Paradise with Moonrise Over Mt Rainier”

Breathing Nature’s Fresh Air

During this strange Covid year we’ve had to be hypervigilant about the very air we breathe, wearing masks and distancing ourselves to avoid transmitting the insidious virus to each other.

Wet, sloppy snowflakes have already stopped falling and the thin layer that covered the ground… Continue Reading “Winter Scenes in the Pacific Northwest”

Goodbye to Snowmageddon

It’s finally time to say goodbye – and some may say good riddance – to February and Snowmageddon.  But before I do, I thought I’d share a few more pictures from our epic snowy February here in the Great Northwest! Yes, it was inconvenient… Continue Reading “Goodbye to Snowmageddon”
