What a beautiful time to visit Mount Rainier and stay at the cabin with loved ones, friends and family over the holidays! Trust us when we say the teenagers will welcome the warmth of the cabin loft and games after a fun-filled day in the snow (and what a great way to get them to sleep with beautiful dreams after a wonderful day)…parents can get their rest, too, beside the wood stove. Warm fires, hot drinks, soothing hot tub after adventures on Rainer hiking trails – how great is that? Pretty darn nice, we think. And, you will, too. Ever been snowshoeing on a trail around a frozen lake? Well, Reflection Lake is absolutely spectacular- even snow-covered! While hiking on the snow covered trails, with all the sights and wonders, your imagination will wander with all the shapes that nature makes in snow, trees & ice..the trees & rocks take magical shapes…Hobbits? Gnomes? Prehistoric Animals? Family faces? How about frozen streams? Frozen waterfalls? It just does not get anymore picture perfect than this. “Breathtaking”, for sure. And, pretty cool, you can come back in the summer, maybe in the twilight, and see the lakes refection among the wild flowers. Wow, now that is reality!!! Mount Rainier National Park is open all year and truly an all-season experience. Enjoy the beauty and head “up the hill” (that’s what the locals say when they have to go to “town” and can’t wait to get back up here, and that is the truth.)! p.s. We are only about 5 minutes from the park entrance and as you pass through Ashford, stop at Whittaker Mountaineering for rentals including snowshoes, gear, tubes & x-country skis. http://www.whittakermountainering.com (360.569.2142)
