    Yesterday, the wife and I jumped in our '11 Ram 1500 Big Horn Crew 4x4 and went for a day trip to Mount Rainier National Park. The park itself is about 40 miles away from my base (Fort Lewis, Tacoma WA), but the drive we took was roughly 400 miles, we went all the way around the park. We saw everything from rivers, to waterfalls, to glaciers. It really is one of the most magnificent National Parks in the country. Top 5 I would say (and we have literally toured the country several times)...We took over 350 pictures yesterday, but I won't do that to you. Instead, I uploaded all of them to photobucket and picked out the best ones. Being that I just had my hip surgery, she did most of the walking, I did some, but not any of the trails. She took both cameras and went on her merry way snapping photos like a boss. Anywhoo, here is the link to my photobucket since there are FARRRR too many photos to upload here:

    Great pics! I didn't know there were any other WA guys around anymore. I haven't been to Rainier for years, I need to get back there.

    I have been stationed here for 3 years, but I just bought my escort off the original owner (my former neighbor) last november. Had 93k on it, now has 102k LOL. I drive the piss out of this car.

    You should go to Rainier again...before it explodes preferably LOL

    Nice to have an army of two. :)
    Only uploaded ~700 of them eh ? ;)
    Mighty hard to capture the beauty of a place those massive seens without the panorama function. I need to learn how to use the functions in my cameras also. That would also eliminate the need for as many "duplicate" photos and they almost always look absolutely stunning on computer background displays. Very nice trip. :)

    no, we uploaded about 350 or so, the rest are from other trips. We are headed to long beach WA today. 28 miles of continuous, DRIVEABLE beach. Of course we are taking the truck again (I dont think FWD is a good idea in sand, though scorty does great in the snow and ice).

    Long Beach is nice. My mom lives in North Cove, about 30 minutes north of there. I drove my old 'scort on the beach all the time but I've seen quite a few people get stuck.
