Autumn at Mount Rainier hasn’t really materialized. I chased the sun this morning to Reflection Lake and then headed up to Pinnacle Peak saddle and attempted Plummer Peak. Needed my microspikes halfway up the trail (a challenging place to put them on …) Saw a teensy bit of fall and then full-on gorgeous winter. Man, I love days like this. Church. My Sunday ritual.
The last photos are from the county park in Ashford. I love that place and usually walk the wetland loop before I finish my drive home. Highly recommend this lovely diversion.
(Oh, and if you know who belongs to the paw prints I was following, please share. )
