Mount Rainier Trip

We had a great day with my sister Diane, her husband John, and my nieces Mandy and Ari exploring Mount Rainier National Park.  Ari spotted these adorable baby foxes and my husband took over 100 photos. We had a wonderful time with our family.  For this vacation, I decided not to pack any crafting supplies. Big mistake, I am so missing crafting and my Cricuts.  Yikes!

Mount Rainier from about 30 miles away. It is the tallest mountain in the Cascade Range at 14,411 feet (4,392 m).

A pair of fox kits that were out of their den while mom was away. They look big in the photo, but are actually smaller than a house cat. The den was under a snow bank right beside the road and they seemed to be enjoying the warm sun. They posed for quite a few pictures before disappearing into the den when tourists finally got too close.

Watching tourists is boring!

I can 't wait to share my next stop with you, it is my favorite store ever!
