To the wilderness of Washington

A travel blog entry by happyhod


Thursday 5th June
We set off with heavy hearts from Garibaldi and go on our way out of Oregon and back to Washington and Mount Rainier national Park to the little town of Packwood we go south to Tillamook and then take route 6 east towards Portland where we go through the Tillamook national forest and once again it is absolutely beautiful and is a great drive with the road enclosed on both sides with huge trees it is again a beautiful sunny day and seems a bit warmer today ...

Mount Rainer

A travel blog entry by twogosouth


1390 Kilometers Rimwood Lake - Mount Rainer Today we went to Mount Rainer National Park. We drove up to the visitor center for lunch and then went on a nice walk which had great views of the mountain. There were some (apparently) lovely meadows with nice flowers on our walk. Mount Rainer is a volcano in a chain of mountains called the Cascades which is close to ...

The views are spectacular and it is a shame to tear ourselves away but there is ...

Into the Cascade Mountains

A travel blog entry by beadledove

Day by day breakdowns of earth tremors, bulging, evacuations and the final video of the eruptions and mud flows. Mother nature rules! As we live 100 miles from an active volcano this display was very chilling.

On up to Mount Ranier for the night. We stayed in the first campground we came to ...
