Yesterday, the wife and I jumped in our '11 Ram 1500 Big Horn Crew 4x4 and went for a day trip to Mount Rainier National Park. The park itself is about 40 miles away from my base (Fort Lewis, Tacoma WA), but the drive we took was roughly 400 miles, we went all the way around the park. We saw everything from rivers, to waterfalls, to glaciers. It really is one of the most magnificent National Parks in the country. Top 5 I would say (and we have literally toured the country several times)...We took over 350 pictures yesterday, but I won't do that to you. Instead, I uploaded all of them to photobucket and picked out the best ones. Being that I just had my hip surgery, she did most of the walking, I did some, but not any of the trails. She took both cameras and went on her merry way snapping photos like a boss. Anywhoo, here they are...
The first place we stopped was Carter Falls and the Nisqually River:
Next we snapped a pic of Mt. Tahoma:
And a few of the Nisqually River, Nisqually Glacier and Christine Falls:
