Naches Peak Loop Wildflowers

Here are some wildflowers from the Naches Peak Loop Trail in Mount Rainier National Park I took at the beginning of the Summer. This is just before I ran into a swarm of skeeters. Until the next time my archenemy.

“‘These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts; do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,’ declares the Lord” – Zechariah 8:16-17

Trekking for Wildflowers

Here’s another one from the Naches Loop Trail in Mount Rainier National Park. I was there at the end of June and the wildflowers were a plenty. It was awesome. It’s too bad they don’t last longer.

“Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, people of Israel?'” – Ezekiel 33:11

Naches Loop Trail Rainer View

A couple weeks ago I hiked part of the Naches Loop Trail to get to a certain spot where there was a lake and Mt Rainier in the distance. I was hoping the wildflowers would be out and they were. It was awesome. It was so awesome that while I was hiking I didn’t really notice any mosquitoes. Then, I went to set up for the shot below and I got swarmed. Mosquitoes and I have a love/hate relationship. I hate them and they love me. The worst part of it was that I had my daughter on my back in a kid carrying backpack. I thought for sure she’d get bitten so I took the pictures as fast as I could and got out of there. When I got home I must have had 20 bites on my back and shoulders and a bunch on my arms and wrist. I even had a couple on my neck. It was pretty bad but I was glad to find that my daughter didn’t get any. So, if you are looking for natural mosquito repellant just have me stand by you and you’ll be mosquito free. I charge by the bite though 🙂

“and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned” – Jeremiah 18:8
