Snoqualmie, Mt. Rainer and Portland

Vacation Day 3!

Today we drove out of Seattle. Our first stop was at Snoqualmie Falls. This waterfall is the tallest in the state of Washington. Next we drove to Mt. Rainer National Park. Just outside the park is Crystal Mountain. There we took a gondola ride to the top where the views were spectacular and we ate lunch at Summit House. It was 42 degrees and the boys loved the snow patches. After the drive through the park, we headed down to Portland. In Portland we stayed at the Nines Hotel. We snacked in the roof and then ate at The Urban Farmer restaurant. Our waitress mentioned to the chef that Davy is in a bee club at school, so he came out and took us on a tour of their rooftop garden, showed us their rooftop apiary, and then their aquaponics garden in the basement of the hotel. It was an awesome personal touch experience.
