La Munte (Mt Rainier)

Mommy, daddy and Sofia went to visit Mt Rainier this past weekend. It is the biggest mountain in the state of Washington, standing tall at over 14,000 ft.

The mountain also boasts some big glaciers, so besides it being tall and hard to climb, the glaciers make it even harder.

Of course we didn’t make it that far, we only made it up to Sunrise, which is the highest point you can get to by car, at 6,000 ft.
Here are some pics from our excursion:

Visiting Seattle, part 1

Today we went to see Pike Place, an open air market in downtown Seattle. We had a great brunch at Etta’s, then we walked around the market looking at all the flowers, produce, meats, souvenirs and sidewalk performers, got some great Russian pastries for dessert and coffee from the first Starbucks ever opened, then we hang out on the lawn, by the water watching the birds and the people.

All in all, a great day!
