The one cherry has been eaten (by me), along with lots of raspberries, and two apples that fell of the tree a couple of weeks ago. The red apples are nearly ready to eat, and the two pears are coming along nicely.
These are volunteer nasturtiums from years past. They are everywere.

There was a long line at the entrance (Paradise side), but with our National Park senior pass, we got to go right in. Parking, on the other hand, was ghastly. One hundred years ago last weekend there were only 800 visitors to Mt. Rainier, and 147 cars. This year it was more like a million. Well, a lot, anyway.
We took the Nisqually Vista Trail, a short loop out to look at Nisqually Glacier. It has certainly changed in the forty years since the first time I saw it.
The meadows are in full bloom, and it's wonderful to see how they've grown back over the years. Here are some of what's in bloom, with what I hope are correct identifications.
And we finished off with a really good lunch at Longmire.
