I have many things I should be blogging about, Christmas, waxing poetic about the end of the decade, etc, but instead I’m going to blog about the fun snowshoeing trip we just went on with Tom’s parents! (Much easier, and I already have the photos processed. Judge away.)
Tom was determined to get his folks down to Mt. Rainier National Park as part of their visit this Christmas, so even though the weather report was marginal at best, we loaded up the Suby with all of our winter gear, and headed south. We arrived at Paradise, strapped on our snowshoes and headed toward the mountain. Rainier was mostly visible, which we would take as a win.
It was fun to get out and get some exercise, since I feel like all we’ve done since my winter break began was eat, drink, sit around and watch football, and eat again. Now, this is not a bad way to spend one’s vacation, but it’s not fabulous for the waistline. So exercise is good. Exercise with a view of Mt. Rainier and some wonderful family is even better. Paradise comes through again!!
