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

Winter in Snoqualmie

We attempted a snowshoe up at Denny Creek back in January but by the time we got there (around noon) the place was packed and we couldn’t find a parking spot. So, we headed up to Snoqualmie Ski Mountain and that place was a zoo. We ended up snowshoeing a little bit around the Nordic track. The kids had fun playing in the snow but it wasn’t what I really had in mind. We did however check out Gold Creek which is near where I took this shot. The Gold Creek area looked like a much better place to snowshoe around. Next time we need to get there a lot earlier. Live and learn.

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful – John 15:1-2

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

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

Longmire Icicles

Back on Christmas Eve 2016 we made a trip to Longmire in Mount Rainier National Park for some family fun in the snow. As we pulled in I noticed these pretty cool icicles coming off the roof of the administration building.

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
