We've made it a tradition to go to Mt. Rainier in mid- August the last few years. There is just no place like it at this special time when the wild flowers are in peak bloom. We invited our good friends, the Carver family, to join us on a pretty strenuous 5 mile hike. The weather held out, the flowers were gorgeous, we got some sneak peeks of the mountain (but it was mostly behind clouds), and the temperature was perfect!
Miles was a trooper for about 4.5 out of 5 miles! Good little hiker that 3 year old!!
Playing on the glaciers is always fun!
I say this every year, but the pictures don't even do it justice. If you ever get the chance to visit Seattle in mid-August, Mt. Rainier (we always go to the Paradise park entrance), it's a must-see!
