Mount Rainier National Park – A Sleeping Giant

Our trip to the northwest corner of the country supplied us with some unique opportunities. Dwelling in the heartland brings its own scenes of beauty, but in Washington State, we were finding new experiences. After spending a couple of days with our son, along came a day he had to work. This gave us a chance to take an excursion to Mount Rainier. Since we have recently acquired a taste for hiking, this national park would offer us some amazing challenges. After all, it's not every day that we get to walk around an active volcano. Let's just hope we don't disturb this [...]

Epic Road Trip Goals – Seeing The D-Rock

When we set about planning our travels for 2021, it was determined that we needed to add a visit to the Northwest Coast.

4 Reasons To See Spokane Falls

The second day of our Epic Road Trip had finished with a stay in Billings, Montana. We woke on day 3, refreshed and ready to continue our push to the coast. While we wish to explore more sections of Montana, we would have to put that idea on the backburner for now. Today's schedule included a little over 9 hours of drive time with only one attraction stop in sight. Being early risers, we were on the road with the rising sun. We made great time with only a lunch break and a short stop in Wallace, Idaho. After stretching our legs with [...]
