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 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

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 […]

Path to the Shed

Here’s another one from Crystal Mountain in Washington. There was a little shed tucked into some trees with a path cut into the snow that caught my eye. Here it is. “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” – Matthew 6:27

Fresh Snow

We went up to Crystal Mountain in Washington on Christmas Eve to play in the snow with the kids. It had been snowing up there the previous couple days so there was plenty of it. Even just the drive up to the mountain was cool with all the snow covered trees. “No one can serve […]

Overlooking the Paradise Inn

I haven’t had a chance to stay at the Paradise Inn in Mount Rainier National Park but I hope to at least once. I wonder why it’s closed in the Winter because that would be a really cool time to stay there. Maybe it’s because they can get a lot of snow there with no […]
