We Mountaineeeeer

Sometimes (when the skies finally stop raining and raining and raining for 9 months straight) I feel like I need to pinch myself.. I live in paradise. Northwest paradise, specifically. Puget Sound/Salish Sea paradise.. Cascade Mountains in one direction, Olympics in the other. This is just a few hours away:

Mt. Rainier! 14,000 odd feet of majestic tectonic beauty. And today, an unbelievable 75-degree April day, seemed like a good time to put on these:

And channel my inner mountain goat.

Paradise! Hiked up, slid/stumbled down. I'm sunburnt and happy. This is the best song about mountaineering, ever!
