After raining on + off for the last two days, which helpfully parted as we around Mount St Helens yesterday, today got pretty much washed out! We drove up to Mount Rainer National Park and the whole area looked very scenic – reminded me a lot of Scotland, especially the rain! Lots of lakes and tree-covered rolling hills, but with such low cloud and constant rain we didn’t try to drive through the park itself as their were major roadworks on the other side of the park, and since Mount Rainer dominates everything around it at over 14,000 feet, it seemed a bit of a waste of time without seeing anything out the windows let alone stepping outside and hiking! When we first drove down from Seattle a month ago you could clearly see it from 100 miles away so would have been a nice way to finish off our road trip, but we can’t complain at the weather since it’s been the first rain during the day we’ve had in 5 weeks!
So, an early night before a 6a.m flight tomorrow, and hopefully this fella will still be around in Anchorage and up for adoption 🙂
