I’ve been to Seattle quite a few times now and when the weather is clear the view of Mount Rainier from the airport and the arrival into the airport is stunning. Ever since seeing it for the first time I’d wanted to visit the area – and on Sunday I did.

We drove up through the National Park to the visitor centre at Paradise. After a look around the visitors centre we went for a walk up the completely snow covered Deadhorse Creek trail (where the above picture was taken). The original plan hadn’t called for any walking on snow, so my choice of footwear wasn’t ideal but the scenery was staggering and the weather perfect so my soggy feet paled into insignificance.

For anyone who enjoys getting out into the world I can’t recommend a trip to Mount Rainier enough.
