Snowshoeing to Lake Louise

A few weeks ago we went snowshoeing at Mt. Rainier National Park, my first trip of the season. It was a bit more challenging than usual, mostly due to the iciness of the snow, but still rewarding as always. Here is a short summary:

“So where’s our trail?” I asked Ryan.
“I think up there,” he pointed.

“I thought you said there wasn’t going to be much elevation…”
“There isn’t, once we get to the top.”

And so we were off! Once we got the “flat part”, Ryan led the way, taking note of important signs, looking out for our safety…

Then the best part of snowshoeing: after we drove to Tacoma and ate burgers and onion rings at Engine House 9. YUM! The end!
