Day 37... Got up early to see rainier. We packed up camp and drove through the park taking selected short hikes at points of interest the mountain is a 14 thousand foot glacier that is covered in ice and snow... dad loved it and kept saying " ive never seen mountains like that before " we took a 5 mile hike with amazing views of rainier around noon and took in as much of that fragrent mountain air as we could. We had lunch at a restaurant on the river super yummie. Then we had a long drive to cour d alean, idaho. There was only one hotel room left in the town with two beds. But it was nice because we could get a shower and good nights sleep. We decided to do the old early to bed early to rise and get a move on in the am because we loose an hour between here and yellowstone.
