Seattle Part 3 of 6. Ocean and Mountains in Washington State

On a sunny day we went to Shilshole beach. It's a trendy place where people like to celebrate weddings. It has magnificent views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Although it was sunny nobody was in the water that day.





The following day we headed to Mount Rainier National Park, 3 hours driving South from Seattle to the Sunrise entrance, North of the volcano. Another sunny day.  The day temperature while driving was 55 F, but I noticed that while driving in the dark road due to the big trees the temp drop 10 degrees in a matter of minutes. When we arrived to the last stop at the Visitor Center, and after just walking a short distance here's what I sawwwwww....(my jaw just dropped) Mount Rainier itself, majestic and intimidating. Emmons Glacier is the biggest glacier in the continental United States.



Short after finishing my sketch, we headed to another trail towards the Shadow Lake, beautiful small lake, but worth hiking and sketching. Click here for part 4.
