Kirkland Waterfront

I had some time to kill in Kirkland one afternoon, so I wandered around and shot up the waterfront.

Snowshoeing at Longmire, Mt. Rainier

The road to paradise was closed when we arrived so we had to snowshoe around Longmire instead. That was just fine because we were all still a little worried about avalanches in paradise. We followed the trail along the river and ate lunch a couple miles up where the view was excellent. It was seriously cold. By the time we got back, they’d opened the road. So we drove to paradise to see the view for 5 minutes before heading back home.
