Carpe Diem: Skyscraper Peak

On the last weekend before Ryan hits the road for Cali and law school (with Jacob in tow as his traveling companion for the road trip), I craved some time with my sons. So after a leisurely Sunday morning I suggested a nice little day hike.  But where? My favorite trail, of course–The Wonderland, at Mt Rainier. By noon we were on the road. By 4:00 p.m. we were standing on top of Skyscraper Peak (7,078′) on the south side of Rainier. What a spectacular day with my sons!

That’s Mt Rainier behind us. It sure is nice to have a volcano in your backyard, so to speak.
