Impromptu Trip to Mount Rainier

Last weekend, my dear husband Matty decided to surprise me with a camping trip to Rainier! At first I was overwhelmed and didn't want to go. But he did all the work! And it was a blast. I am so glad we went.
We woke up super early on Saturday to watch the sunrise. Matt took some pretty neat panoramas with his camera phone!
After the sunrise we headed back to camp for some yummy (and very caloric) breakfast. I guess we decided that fires and food are the two best things about camping!

Our hike was epic! It was thirteen miles, and pretty brutal! Somehow I am better at the 5 mile round trip hike that is straight up like a stair master (Mailbox) and not so good at the 13 mile "easier" hike. But it was so, so beautiful. It couldn't have been a more perfect day!
Thanks for looking at these photos. I will be back later this week with some fall photos. I am really getting into this season (as you may have noticed from my last post.)
