This is where I was this weekend. This beautiful waterfall, Christine Falls, is located in Mount Rainier National Park and was just begging to have its picture taken.
It's amazing that this mountain can be seen from hundreds of miles away.
We can't see Mt. Rainier from Seattle every day. Often the sky is just too dark or overcast to get a glimpse of it. But there are days when the mountain is extremely visible and towers over the city. On those days, I always reach for my camera to take a picture of it. Here is a picture of Mt. Rainier from Lake Washington in Seattle.
Anyway...back to our trip...
There is a road that winds its way deeper into the park. Around every turn is an even better view of Mount Rainier.
And of course we had to get out and stretch our legs for a bit.
I love the warmer weather of Seattle. It's warm without being so hot that I feel suffocated. But the rainy days are just around the corner, so I'm starting to feel the need to get out as much as possible before the temperature drops.
