So this weekend Chris and I drove down to Mount Rainier National Park and stayed at the Cedar Creek Treehouse, a tree house that’s 50 feet up in a tree. It was awesome! The tree house itself is three levels. There’s a sitting/patio area that has a hammock and is open for the most part. The next level is the main living area that had a little table and chairs, a sink with a gas stove and a sun room and a bathroom of sorts. The top level is the sleeping loft and it featured sky lights that let you star gaze as much as you want. And yes, the trunk of the tree is the center feature of all the rooms!
We stopped at Crystal Mountain and rode the gondola on the wait to the tree house.
When I told the owner of the local coffee shop that I go to where we were heading she asked me to take the cow from her lobby and get some photos. Well, here we all are, stuck in traffic. They are repaving the mountain road and it was one lane in many places.
On Saturday we took a little hike to Bench Lake. There was lots of alpine meadows and cool looking trees along the way.
Even though it’s 85 degrees, you’ll sometimes find big piles of snow!
