I like to visit Mt. Rainier at least every other year. I think I have been there about 7 times since we m0ved to the state of Washington. The
last time I was there over labor day 2004 before I lost the majority of my balance. I recall my dad and I walked across a glacier which I would no longer be able to do. Yet the mountain still calls to me and it was my wish to visit it again for my birthday (September 22nd).
I am pictured here the highest I was able to hike that day. Harley and I think I could have gone farther but the trail got steeper and more challenging which would have been incredibly difficult to walk back down and not to mention would take me a long time.
I could not help myself though and as our journey progressed I wanted to go higher up the mountain and further up the trail.
