Tuesday, September 8, Josh writes . . .
In Packwood, we bought groceries, went to the Post Office and then to the library for internet. We had hoped to hike up to the alpine country in Mt. Rainier National Park, but didn't make it out of town in time. We wanted to take advantage of the clear sunny weather after surviving the miserable 3-day rainstorm. The problem we faced was that virtually every forecast called for rain and clouds on Sept. 9 -- weather which would make Mt. Rainier unpleasant. For the rest of the week following, the forecast called for great weather. So, late in the day, we decided to spend another night in Packwood and really start our Rainier (to Snoqualmie) hike on Thursday. For dinner, we had a camp meal, cooked on our one-burner stove on the deck outside our motel room. Being our usual gluttonous selves, the night was finished off with 2 liters of rootbeer float.
