With Ruth at Girl’s Camp, I got to spend some time with Magnus. And since we had to go pick Ruth up at camp, so I could go to work the next day, we decided to take the scenic route. So, Elina, Magnus and I went to Mt. Rainier NP.
Since we didn’t have the whole day we only made a few stops. We spent the most time at Paradise. There was still a lot of snow, enough that it was difficult to find a picnic table that wasn’t buried. We also visited the new visitor center at Paradise. Magnus really liked the animal displays.
We decided to hike to Myrtle Falls, even though the trail was covered in several feet of snow.
When we got to the falls, you couldn’t even see the creek. Only the waterfall was not covered, so it looked like it just came out of the snow.
Here we are with the mountain.

Next we stopped by Reflection Lake and another view point:
The last stop was Grove of the Patriarchs. Magnus wanted to walk the whole suspension bridge.
By some of the big trees:
We then made it to Girl’s Camp and found Ruth.
