Tumwater 2020

This past weekend we had some running around to do, but we still wanted to get out and about. Thats where great little spots like Tumwater Falls comes in. It is close, paved (well kinda sorta...after a good rain, everything is pretty loose and muddy) and it is a short but nice little loop. Last... Continue Reading →

Another Side of Tolmie

To kick winter off we headed out for a wander... We had nothing planed for the day so we took advantage. We have been to Tolmie TONS of times before, however we always do the beach trail or hang out on the shore. There are other more inland trails but the signs say to allow... Continue Reading →

Solstice Advent 2019

Anyhow you don't need a permit or to pay for parking in the weekends so we took advantage. There were... Continue Reading →

Mushroom Hunt – Tolmie

This past weekend was D's birthday so we spent the morning at Tolmie. We hadn't been for a while, so it was nice to be back. It was quiet, drizzling, dank and perfect for a wander. There were quiet a lot of slugs on the trail so I just had to stop and watch them... Continue Reading →

Mt Rainier NP

This weekend we decided to head up to My Rainer to get a lay of the land before the snow came. It was a beautiful day and the sights were amazing as well. I figured that there wouldn't be many mushrooms because of the temps and I was right...but there were a few. Sadly the... Continue Reading →
