|Doesn't look too bad...|
It was a pretty hike, but no where near as pretty as Myrtle Falls. But, easy, no way! Even Brent said he would classify it as a moderate hike. And I don't know who is pushing these strollers, but they must be strong.
On the way out, we saw a deer. It got up and stretched and walked away. Kind of cute.
While Nisqually Vista is a decent hike, I think the one that you should absolutely do is Myrtle Falls. It was just really pretty! And in the summer, there would be a TON of wildflowers everywhere!
And on our way out, we stopped at Narada Falls, which is right beside the road. Unfortunately, the trail down to the good picture spot was closed, so this is all we got.
Which is sad, because the light would have been perfect.
All around the National Park, you see signs that tell you not to feed the animals. Seems like good common sense to me. Well, at Narada Falls, there was this family eating lunch and throwing food to the birds. I was kind of giving them an out because it was obvious that they weren't from this country. But then some very American people started trying to get the birds to land on their hands. Basically right in front of the sign that said not to. Oh well. It must be hard to try to go through life and not be able to read!
But...it did make it so we could get some good pictures of the birds.
|One landed on the truck's wing mirror.|
And so ends our LONG day at Mt Rainier National Park. I think we'll come down again next summer when the wildflowers are in bloom! I can hardly wait!
