White Pass and the Tieton River

Over the weekend we traveled to my Grampa Stan's memorial service. On the way there and back we enjoyed the trip in the way he'd taught us. Loving the beauty of the natural world, observing and learning.

 Mount Rainier. Photos don't do it justice:

We'll hike here next time:

I can't remember the name of this falls but it was impressive!

We parked at the Quonset hut to get on the Tieton River Trail. (You need a Discover Pass.)

Oh happy day! It led right to the suspension bridge I'd read about. Imagine doing this when you don't trust your balance. I kept a good grip on the side cables.

I've never seen a green mushroom before. it made me wish I could still ask Grampa Stan.

I love finding heart shapes in the forest.

You don't want to get on a suspension bridge with these two!

I have always loved this section of highway because of the huge bluffs of columnar stone. I wish I'd gotten pictures of the other cliff faces. There were climbers up on one of them.
If we'd been there just a week earlier the aspens would have been stunning!
