Paradise Resort, Silver Creek, WA

Thursday the 19th, we left the Thousand Trails campground in Monroe for our 148 mile move to another TT campground by Silver Creek. The day before we left, we got together with Bill & Diane (bjoyce on the RV-Dreams forums). Donna made a big pot of chili and we ate and caught up. It was a good visit.

We are in space 157 at Paradise Resort.

It is a pretty nice place. Mount Rainier and Mount Saint Helens are both visible... on a clear day. Good satellite TV reception, but no Verizon service (on our Straight Talk phones). They do have a weak WiFi here.

Mt. Saint Helens in the distance. When the clouds move away, you have a great look at where the side of the mountain blew out. Pretty awesome.

Friday, our daughter Candy and her friend Mike came to visit us here. She lives in Vancouver. They stayed 2 nights with us.

Saturday we all headed to Mt Rainier National Park. We spent all day at the mountain. We visited the visitors center and got our Passport stamped, played in the snow, saw waterfalls, and hiked some trails. We entered through the West entrance and left through the East one. It was quite a beautiful drive. I took lots of pictures. Here are a few. Cameras just never capture the beauty as our eyes do.

Grove Of The Patriarchs Trail

Monday we are off to Sequim and the Olympic Peninsula.
