After dinner we went down the road to get fuel and along the way stopped at a WIN's house. We had not met Jerry Armstrong before but had a lovely visit.
The next day we took off for Randle. Donna wanted to show Bob Windy Ridge overlooking Mt. St. Helen's crater. Signs in town said it was closed but we tried anyway. We crossed the Cowlitz River.
Passed by a major slide area.
It WAS closed due to snow on July 11th. Washington DC says NO PLOWING. Back in town we got a bite to eat, checked with the forest ranger and got fuel then headed to Mt. Rainier.
It was opened.
Took lots of pictures.
180 feet down to water level.
Lots of snow.
And lots of flowers.
We drove past this wonderful sculpture park. Did a quick u-turn and strolled through lots of rusty stuff.
