We are in Ashford, Washington staying at the Mountain Meadows B&B. We are here to visit Mount Rainier, National Park. Since we have parked our RV in one place until this awful virus is over, we have been doing a lot of mini-trips in our car. We have been all over the state of Washington, somehow we missed visiting this National Park on all our previous travels. :)
We only had a couple of days, the first day was mostly driving to Ashford and getting set up. The next day we spent the whole day driving through the beautiful park. I am pasting information about Mount Rainer below copied from Wikipedia for your information. I have added a lot of pictures and hope you enjoy them. Check back later for more from Washington.
Mount Rainier National Park is an American national park located in southeast Pierce County and northeast Lewis County in Washington state. The park was established on March 2, 1899, as the fifth national park in the United States, preserving 236,381 acres (369.3 sq mi; 956.6 km2) including all of Mount Rainier, a 14,411-foot (4,392 m) stratovolcano. The mountain rises abruptly from the surrounding land with elevations in the park ranging from 1,600 feet to over 14,000 feet (490–4,300 m). The highest point in the Cascade Range, Mount Rainier is surrounded by valleys, waterfalls, subalpine meadows, and 91,000 acres (142.2 sq mi; 368.3 km2) of old-growth forest. More than 25 glaciers descend the flanks of the volcano, which is often shrouded in clouds that dump enormous amounts of rain and snow.
