A couple weeks ago I had a fun time hosting my dad, who was visiting from out of town. Seattle–fully meeting expectations–maintained a heavy, all-encompassing gray for much of the weekend.
Luckily, we were rewarded with sunlight and clear skies when we hit Mt. Rainier, which had just re-opened after the government shutdown. The route from Seattle wasn’t the easiest to navigate, but worth it as soon as the clouds lifted and we spotted the volcano. I definitely look forward to going back again soon. 🙂
