Another late morning for us two dynamos. As Eva is getting ready I entertain myself by
provoking and photographing Cooper and Starling. Starling especially likes the combination of
string and box.
We made it out before noon this time, and took off south again, but this time we were off
for Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. We had a good time; it was a full day of traveling and sight
seeing made even longer by the 20mph max roads in the mountains. The weather was great, but
the roads had very icy ruts all through the mountains forcing us to take it slow.
I was disappointed
to find that the visitor areas on both Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens were already
closed off due to snow and ice. I could
have made it to the Mt. St. Helens site if I had rented a vehicle with more clearance, but the
Regal just didn't cut the mustard. No matter, it was a beautiful trip.
