September 15: last hike of summer

Actually, also the first hike, and actually not really a hike.  More just sort of a wandering up from the lodge.  But it was beautiful!

First we had a hearty breakfast (eggs, ham and hashbrowns) at Longmire.  Then we drove up to Paradise for a very pleasant walk.  Click on the pictures to see them huge!

Mount Rainier looks like the moon!

Meadow flowers nearly gone

The mountainside had a wonderful glow which the picture almost captures
