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; […]

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 […]

Just a Glimpse

I was up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park doing a short hike with the family and friends. It was overcast and gloomy when we got there and the mountain wasn’t even out. We started our hike to Myrtle Falls and then towards Golden Gate and the mountain still wouldn’t show itself. But then, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

From the Start

I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t head up to the Paradise side of Mount Rainier this last summer, which is my favorite side of the mountain. We did go to some other cool places but we just ran out of weekends I guess. Anyway, this is from the start of a hike I did […]

Seuss Trees

With two little ones at home we read a lot of kids books which of course includes Dr. Seuss. When I stumbled upon these trees I instantly thought they belonged in a Dr. Seuss book with their curvy trunks. Maybe a bunk lives in the trunk of these odd shaped trees 🙂 This was taken […]

Edith Creek

Here’s one of Edith Creek I took during our snowshoeing trip last weekend up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park. There’s a bridge you can take to cross over the creek (it’s just to the right of where I was standing for this photo) maybe about 25 yards before it becomes Myrtle Falls. Well, […]

One Last Look

I was almost back to the Paradise parking lot after hiking to Camp Muir and I took one last look back at Mt Rainier. This actually was my last trip up to the Paradise side for the Summer. I may be back in the Winter to snowshoe and I’ll definitely be back their next Spring/Summer. […]
