You can’t start a day at the Henry’s without a great cuppa Joe with froth. Mmmm! Doug makes the best coffee. There was also a great breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, muffins, & bananas. After which we made lunch in preparation for our trip to the mountain and our day hike.
We selected a hike from the front of this page without really looking at this list. Ironically, the hike we selected was from the strenuous options. Nonetheless, we had fun hiking! 1.4 miles straight up and 1.4 straight down with a little .25 mile loop tracked in at the beginning and the end. Little to no complaining happened at all from the four kids. (Amazing!) After the hike was over we ate lunch by the river. It was wonderful.
We were all so exhausted that all we wanted to do was order pizza for dinner. The boys played outside with new found friends and the parents went to watch sunset on Mount Rainer. It finally “showed up” as the locals say when the clouds part and the tallest mountain in the lower 48 appears. This picture doesn’t do the mountains grandeur justice. You’ll have to see pictures from my camera for that.
