well saturday we decided to work on our lungs so we hiked to camp muir on mt. rainier
it sits at 10,090ft. parking lot is at around 5,000.
im a little sore today and defiantly sunburned. it was me, my wife, and my buddy nick. for those that aren't familiar with it, camp muir is the base camp for the summit push on the tallest peak in WA.

and since we were only 4000ft from the summit of rainier, thought we needed to refresh with some rainier...

Beautiful country. To bad the boots were giving fits. Looks like a good way to spend the day.

oh ya it was crowded, my friend that was with me climbs adams all the time, he just day trips it up and back. if you do it soon you can glissade most of the way back down before it melts.
