Longmire Administrative Building

Here’s one taken of the Longmire Administration Building on Christmas Eve. Great area to snowshoe around if you don’t feel like driving all the way to the top. You can catch the Rampart Ridge Trail right near here.

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing – John 15:5

Snowshoeing with Blue Skies

Blue skies and soft snow make for a great day of snowshoeing at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park. This was taken in January 2017 but I’m sure there’s still plenty of snow up at Mt. Rainier with the weather we’ve had this year.

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. – John 14:1

Last Shot of the Day

Here’s the last shot I took from the snowshoe up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park in January.

Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” – John 11:40

Afternoon Snowshoe

Here’s one from a snowshoe up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park taken in January. I had been sick the day before so I wasn’t feeling 100% but it was sunny and warm (32°F) so there was no way I could pass it up.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die” – John 11:25

Snowy Trail

Here’s another shot from the Trail of the Shadows taken on Christmas Eve. The trail goes around a marshy area and I spotted a standing tree (not pictured) that had been gnawed on by a beaver. Keeps your eyes peeled for it if you do the hike.

I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. – John 10:16

Snowy Trail of Shadows

Creek crossing at the Trail of Shadows in Longmire (Mount Rainier National Park). The water in this area has a brownish color due to all the minerals and there even some hot springs along the trail.

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. – John 8:36

Longmire Gas Station

Here’s one of the old Longmire gas station in Mount Rainier National Park. Fill ‘er up.

Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. – John 6:47

White Out

When I was snowshoeing around up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park the Tatoosh Mountains were bouncing in and out of some fog. It didn’t really clear up until I was driving down the mountain trying to make it out before the gate closed. So, no pictures of the Tatoosh Mountains this time.

“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets” – Matthew 7:12

Winter Wonderland

Here’s another shot from Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park. This is overlooking the main road you’d take from the Paradise Jackson Visitor Center to Reflection Lake. This part of the road is closed for the winter and makes for a nice snowshoe down to Reflection Lake. I’ve done it once but that was a couple years ago and think it took most of the day to complete. Start early if you decide to do it. The gate to leave the park closes at 5 PM.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened” – Matthew 7:7-8

Snowed Inn

I was up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park this last weekend for our first snowshoe of the year. It was actually the first time my 4 year old snowshoed on her own. She did awesome and had a good time. Anyway, the Paradise Inn is pictured here and, as you can see, there is a ton of snow up there.

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” – Matthew 6:34
