Camping in Mt. Rainer

About a week ago we went on our annual camping adventure with the van Anrooys and Strates---it was fabulous as always! A beautiful setting, great weather, yummy food, and some pretty awesome company as well :) Here are a few of the pics I got before my camera died---perhaps there will be a part two if I get some other greats pics sent via email---hint hint hint!

This is the view from our camp site! Great pick guys! If it weren't glacial water we may have spent more time here, but a few refreshing splashes was about all we could take. Who needs to shower on a 5 day camping trip? Not us!

Silver Falls was our first hike (or fun walk really)

Mt. Rainer---and we actually saw (through binoculars) people hiking really close to the top!!!

Hike #2 (the one I pooped out on---read my tag) a little longer, colder, brighter(sun reflecting on snow--ouch!), wetter, and way more difficult. Keith and I turned around at this point and spent a lovely time at the visitors center. Our much tougher friends made the trek and said it was incredible.
I almost read my whole book!! I might have even finished if I was harassed so much---come on guys reading is cool---socializing round the campfire is totally overrated! (don't worry mom, my eyes are fine, I had a reading light hooked on the book!)
