On the Thunder Creek Trail

The Thunder Creek Trail in North Cascades National Park is a nice flat trail (for the first two miles) that goes along…wait for it…Thunder Creek. I think it’s about 2 miles in before you hit a wooden bridge that crosses the river. I think it’s a good goal to shoot for if you have little ones. We went a little farther than the bridge but then it starts to go uphill. It wasn’t too steep but you got to keep things fun and exciting when hiking with kids. Steep usually doesn’t meet that criteria. Plus they have to be able to hike back and there’s only so many kids you can carry 🙂

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life – John 3:16

Thunder Creek Trail

Here’s one from the Thunder Creek Trail in North Cascades National Park. We did a 4 mile out and back to the 4th of July trail junction (I believe the trail is a total of 12 miles) with the little ones.

From The Other Side

Here’s the last of my bridge shots from the Silver Falls Trail in Mount Rainier National Park. Great trail that the kids can do.

Mount Fremont Lookout Trail

I was up at Sunrise in Mount Rainier National Park a couple weeks ago. We attempted to hike up to the Mount Fremont Lookout but the kids (3 and 5) could only make it about 2 miles up the trail and they still had to hike back. I was surprised they made it that far. But, it was getting cold, and a pretty thick fog rolled in around the lookout so we turned around. The fog did clear on our way back so I was able to snap a few pics. Here’s one from the trail.

Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers – Luke 6:44

The Bridge At Silver Falls

Here’s another one of a bridge you’ll find on the Silver Falls Trail in Mount Rainier National Park. Enjoy.

Silver Falls Bridge

Is it just me or do other people think twice when leaking over wooden bridges like this one when hiking? I’m sure they are made well but I’m always thinking the wood planks could snap at any moment so I try to walk on the edges where they are nailed in. Maybe I’m just paranoid.

This is the bridge right by Silver Falls in Mount Rainier National Park.

Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. – Mark 16:16
