I don't know what we did to deserve all this heat, but it can go away anytime. Living in the Pacific Northwest, we don't know temperatures in the 90's. The 80's are our usual hot and not until mid summer. We have had a week now of temperatures in the high 80's and 90's, and we're all thirsting for cool and rain. Hard to believe I'd ever want rain - but the flowers and lawns could sure use it.

A couple of days ago, we took a trip with friends up to Mt. Rainier. We toured the new Visitor Center - which was beautiful, then lunched at the Lodge at Paradise. They had a lot of snow this past winter, but it was off the road up the mountain, but still stacked high alongside the roads and parking lot. Along the way, the rivers and waterfalls are running full speed ahead with melting glacier water. For those of you who have not ever seen glacial water - it is the most beautiful milky-greenish color. Such a beautiful mountain - we look at it every day from where we live.

Mt. Rainier in all its glory!
Beautiful waterfalls along the road to the Mountain.
Dear hubby and I. Guess my hair is "white as snow".
