Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Mt. Ranier:
What a gorgeous view...but I'm getting ahead of myself. The first day getting out of Seattle was a little hectic, but once we were out of the city, we got moving quickly to our destination for the night, Enumclaw. There we had a friendship visit with the Ashley House, an amazing organization that helps children with disabilities. It was 45 miles from Seattle to Enumclaw. Our next destination was all the way in Yakima, a steep 125 miles away.
To get to Yakima, we would have to pass over two mountains, climbing more than 7000 feet. Wow. I think we're all feeling it a little bit right now (I'm currently watching a groggy team struggle to get out of bed), but we'll be ready to go in a little bit. The views we experienced in Mt. Rainier National Park were unbelievable - here's a sampling:
Today we have another 75 miles to go to Richland. I'll post more pictures and updates when I have time. until then, take it easy.
