What better way to celebrate the start of summer (and summer vacation) then to go camping? The weather around these here parts doesn't always cooperate with the seasons according to the calendar. And wouldn't you know it, the weekend we chose to pitch our tents was looking a little "iffy". But we thought we'd chance it anyhow. We headed off to Mt. Rainier (formerly known as Mountain Reindeer in our home) National Park to the Ohanapecosh campground, which we've been wanting to try out for a while now. A chance of rain helped our cause by making the first-come-first-serve sites easier to snag.
The sun was out on one day--and so was the mountain!
The campground is very wooded--which made our site nice and private. The green just glows all around you. Cloudy weather makes sitting around the campfire with a cup of hot chocolate that much more amazing.
A parting shot of The Mountain as it's known around the greater Seattle area. We went on a couple of hikes while we were camping--but I'll save those posts for tomorrow. That is when I took the majority of the pictures and I'm having trouble choosing between them....so it will more than likely be a picture heavy post.
