This week I haven't been able to quit thinking about climbing Mt.Rainier
That led me to remember our amazing time in Seattle.
Not only is that city full of good food, amazing people, & local artists,
but it is surrounded by ocean & mountains that leave me overwhelmed & thankful.
Things I remember:
Arriving at 3am feeling confused & hungry so we ended up eating at IHop.
Spent our mornings waking up to drizzling rain.
Meeting cool people at Pike Place Market.
Kayaking on the Puget Sound & seeing otters swim next to us.
Watching my cousin Nicole get married.
Going to a fair to celebrate Independence Day.
Eating the best salmon of my life that had been caught fresh that morning.
Taking a ferry to British Columbia & riding mopeds all along the ocean road.
My uncle Steve driving us up the coast.
Seeing the biggest cedar trees of my life & skipping rocks while exploring random beaches.
Watching Sarah stop & smell the roses.
Day hiking in Rainier.
Eating amazing pizza & laughing at my hilarious family.
Walking in the Olympic Mountains.
Feeling really happy, inspired, & content.
