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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Making Tracks

We went for our first snowshoe of 2015 up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park on Sunday. It was such a nice day and really warm. Being 60 degrees out it felt like Spring rather than the middle of January. As we were driving up we were worried that there wouldn’t be enough snow […]

Snow Covered Tatoosh

Here’s one from a snowshoe I did last winter up at Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park. Unfortunately I’ve only gone snowshoeing once this season. Hopefully I can get back up there at least one more time before the season is over. On another note I just took a class on wilderness first aid so […]

Snow Prints

Here’s another shot I took right from the parking lot up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park. It was a great end to a great day of snowshoeing. Whether it be Fall, Winter, Spring, or Summer I highly recommend heading up to Paradise if you are visiting Western Washington and leaving your own set […]

New Trails

I went for my first snowshoe of 2014 on Saturday up at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park. It was awesome! The sun was out and actually pretty warm (around 50F). I wanted to pull up a beach chair and watch the sun go down behind the Tatoosh Mountains (the mountain range just to the […]
