I have to say I didn't enjoy Mt. Rainier as much as I did the Mt. St. Helen's trip but that was because I had been up Mt. Rainier just three years ago. It hasn't changed all that much except for having a heavier snowfall this year and colder temperatures making the glaciers grow.
Don't drink the water on Mount Rainier. Well maybe if you have water purification tablets it might be safe. I can't see as how all that rust and iron content in the water can be healthy for the body. Personally I wouldn't even walk in that water from this particular stream.
Our next journey and last of the overnight trips starts today. We are headed up to the town of Sequim (pronounced like swim but with a "q" ) for the Lavender Festival. I'm going to be without wifi for three days. Not sure how I'm going to cope. We'll see what photos I have for my blog when I get back. The weather is supposed to be over cast and raining which, though usual for most of Washington, is unusual for Sequim since its the driest town in Washington. Where ever I go the precipitation seems to follow.
