Today was a gorgeous day. With taxes done and most of my personal finances caught up, we went for a Sunday drive, enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest weather.
We did a route that was done last fall - went to McKenna and stopped at Stewart's Meat Market for some of their delicious jerky & pepperoni. Today, we bought the Old Fashioned Beef Jerky (it had no sugar) and Beef Pepperoni stick. We enjoyed the jerky the most. It tasted heavily of pepper so drank plenty of water. The pepperoni was spicy but seemed blah.
We then headed towards Mt Rainier. Such a beautiful sight - no cap and lots of fresh snow. We went as far as Longmire. Walked around and took some photos (will have to post them later). As it was getting to be late afternoon, we decided to head back and not go up to Paradise. Instead of heading towards Eatonville (the way we came), we headed south to Morton then took Hwy 508 towards Onalaska.. However, we didn't go all the way to Onalaska, we turned off on the Centralia-Alpha road and went to Centralia.
We ate dinner at O'Blarney's in Centralia then headed towards home with a stop at Dairy Queen in Grand Mound.
