Trail of the Shadows

At Mount Rainier our second hike of the day was a one mile loop at Longmire (on the way back from paradise).

It was an interpretive trail, including talking about the business side of things (building the first cabins here).

We also got to see the rusty iron color in this hot springs / underwater river mix (if I remember the sign right).

Bubbling (cold) hot springs! (Bottom left)

After the hike we headed back to Seattle. We stopped for burgers and milkshakes on the way. I tried the rhubarb shake because the town is known for their rhubarb, but I’ll admit the few sips of Kaya’s strawberry shake was amazing.
