I love living where mountains are all around but Mt. Rainier makes me so happy.
Great snowshoe trip to Mt. Rainier National Park!
Unless you keep on visiting the same place, travelling is always about exploring and discovering something new. Whether you are taking the path less travelled or the path that everyone takes, you are always discovering something that is new to you when you are in a new destination. .
This is how I approached my first visit to Mount Rainier, although I was somewhat limited by being with a tour group. It was just as interesting and exciting to discover something on the well worn path that I had never seen before than to try and step away from the path.

“Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose. Fear - it is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering” These wise words of Yoda I think of, as I stand facing the galaxies, with my very own lightsaber. One day I will conquer the universe.

SMONDAY: the moment when Sunday stops feeling like a Sunday and the anxiety of Monday kicks in. 😬 I used to get job anxiety, but now it's being away from my husband anxiety.
