August 10, 2016, Drove through Mountain Rainier, Hiked Smaller Trails, Headed Towards Seattle

August 10, 2016, Drove through Mounts Rainier to the North Entrance heading towards Seattle, Hiked Smaller Trails around the park.

Today the sky cleared and we had beautiful views of Mount Rainier as we drove along Route 410 across and up and out the top entrance. Along the road we stopped at Box Canyon which is about 170 feet deep and the Groves of the Patriarchs, which has some amazing trees. A day earlier the fog and mist were so heavy we had to turn back, but today much better. For the evening we stayed in Enumclaw. On Friday August 11 we drove to Louise's brother's house in Seattle.
