If we could have remembered the words my sister and I would have been singing songs from "The Sound of Music"!
Originally my sister did not think she felt well enough to do much hiking around the hills above Paradise Inn so we did not wear our hiking boots. Once we started it was hard to stop because it was very beautiful even though Mt. Ranier was hidden in a cloud bank. We reluctantly turned around shortly after taking this picture. The lupines and astors were thick along the trail here.
