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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]
