10/03/2010: Day 10: Seattle to Vancouver, WA on a Rainier Day
I made a silly decision this morning. I thought it might be nice to go see Mt. Rainier, just outside Seattle. The forecast said, Mostly Cloudy. I'm a flatlander! How was I supposed to know? I expected to see a mountain under the clouds.
But we drove 9 hours completing almost a full circle around Mount Rainier National Park, including a drive up the mountain to the visitor's center. Even on the mountain, it was invisible.
You may also note from the captions that this was not a completely successful venture. I was sad and dejected by the time we passed the Mount Saint Helens visitor's center (just after it closed) and headed on south to Vancouver, WA to stop for the night.
