Today we thought we would get another Jr. Ranger Badge. It has been a very long time since I went to Mt. Rainier. No, it really has not changed, still amazingly beautiful.
The boys needed a bit of a leg stretch. There was a long detour since part of Highway 7 was washed out.
Even if the bathrooms were not pleasant, it was very much worth the stop
We went to the gift shop, but they did not have what we wanted. I wanted to get Drew a National Parks Passport and a Jr. Ranger hat. We will find them !!
The boys worked on their pamphlets during lunch. This was one of the easiest Jr Ranger book we have done yet! It was still a good amount of learning
We went into the Visitor's Center. The wonderful Ranger counted our walk up from where we parked the car as our hike. The boys needed to watch the movie that started in 15 minutes, but they got to skip the Ranger talk since the one starting at 2 was 75 minutes of walking. I could not keep up. sorry boys. The next Ranger talk was at 4pm, so she let us skip that step. THANK YOU
The movie was very informative and the boys both liked it. No squirming or talking. It was great!
It was after three and we needed to get going. I told the boys we were not going to stop again til we get back to Tacoma
Of course we stopped. He was just wondering around, munching on grass. He seemingly did not notice any of us way above him
This time we did not stop till we got to Tacoma. We met up with Aunt Janet at a wonderful place called Social. Wonderful food, and even better company
