We were blessed with a beautiful clear day. It was cold and windy, but you could see for miles.
When up at the top, you feel like you are on top of the world, until you glance over at the towering Mount Rainier.
A quick glance over the edge reminds you just how far up you are.
I'm not a panicky mama, but everytime Kaia stepped within 4 feet of the edge, I came unglued. I don't mind heights, but I don't like edges. Especially not ones that my girl could trip and fall down, and we'd have no way of saving her. I shudder thinking of it!
The Jeep got a little muddy on the way up, but it got even muddier on the way down!
Notice I'm hanging on tight to my girl, and staying in front of the "barrier". I'm still not sure what that barrier could possibly keep from going over.
Notice there is no Mo in the photos. He sat on my hip for a bit, I let him down for about 30 seconds so he could inspect the radio tower that is located up there, and then he was cold and wanted to go back to his car seat. I was happy to oblige.
It was a nice little break for the day, and fun family time.
