Over the Holiday weekend we got out of town and went to Mt. Rainier, courteousy of the parent-in-laws. They're very nice. This amazing waterfall was about 1/4 of a mile from our back door. As you hiked the trail down to it, the air became denser, cooler, and unbelievably crisp and clean. It smelled the way air is supposed to smell. I sat by the waterfall for quite a while, drank some water, and took some pictures. The water came from melted snowpac and tasted as good (if not better) than the air smelled. I used it to make coffee one morning, and that was good coffee.
The big guy figured out how to swim without floaties. Between the pool, the hot tub, the woods, and having a handful of kids to play with, he was about as happy as a six year old could be.
The girls had a blast and were happy too.
This dog could play soccer. He was good and I could tell he was also happy. If I was a dog I'd want to live in the country.
Each night ended with a big campfire put on by the staff with s'mores, soda, wine, and beer. people really enjoyed themselves. I'd like to spend more time with my family in the mountains. I think I will.
