Mt. Rainier Hike

With the heavy snowfall last winter believe it or not we are still waiting for peak wildflower hiking around Mt. Rainier.  Kent and I took a recent hike up there so I thought I'd share a few pictures.

 I hope you enjoyed these pictures.  It's so nice to have such a beautiful mountain in our "backyard".
