morning Mt. Rainier

Big White

Didn't wake up as early as I'd hoped this morning so I had a late start at 715 am. Mt. Rainier's glaciers were reflecting the bright sun. The day was just destined to move slowly. Luckily, of the one million and one tourists/day hikers out today in Mt. Rainier National Park, only a few had a notion about what I was doing and wanted to talk. I also passed a pcta volunteer trail crew.

Had to suck it up and get water out of a lake that people were swimming in today. You better bet I filtered the you know what out of it. Yuck!

As I was dragging myself through a pass, white dots caught my eye. Could it be? As I approached, the white mountain goats were not far above but they didn't seem too worried. A herd of 7 with one baby. The young one didn't have the brilliant white coat yet but rather was a dirty off white color. I took a moment to look around the big valley. On the far side more white dots caught my eye. There were at least 20 goats milling around. Wow!

Camped in the flight path of jets headed into Seattle. Joy.
