Nuthin’ fancy

Went up to Mount Rainier yesterday for a bit of family camping. It rained off and on and we all were wrapped up in our winter finest – to hell with what the calendar says. A good little hike up to Carter Falls and some tri-tip on the grill when we got back. It was a soft trip but it was time for it to happen… they don’t all have to be epics.
This morning we drove up to Paradise, mostly to see the snow. Yup, it’s still there, and about ten feet deep there next to the Visitor’s Center. It’s hard to see how there will be any wildflowers this year. The mountain came out for a little while, then covered up again with layer on layer of gauzy clouds. Perhaps we’ll see more of her next time.
Maybe we’ll go back in summer.
