Thanks to our Seattle friend Marita, we enjoyed a gentle 3 mile day hike around Naches Peak in the Mt. Rainier National forest. Rock grottoes sprinkled with tiny colorful wildflowers, sepia stone ridges with a trace of snow, lakes and ponds framed by dark green conifers. A dozen crows gliding on an updraft. Near the end, clouds lifted to reveal the lower half of Mt. Rainier. A delicious day in Big Nature to nurture our hearts and souls.
