Camping at Ohanapecosh

We drove up on Friday the 16th to Mt Rainer National Park to camp until Sunday. It was a beautiful day on friday so the drive was nice and hardly any traffic. Must be because its late in the camping season but we found a nice campsite before the crowd came in late to the campground.
Here is a picture of the campsite.

Camping at Leavenworth

Since we finally got our "stuff" shipped out to Suriname on Wednesday, we decided to escape on the weekend to go camping. Leavenworth is about 2 hours driving and is usually warm. Well, it was 97F so it was plenty warm and we camped next to the river to stay cool. Ended up taking a nap after setting up the Westy and a hangmat between two trees. Monique fell asleep on a mat on the ground next to me...what a lazy afternoon! On Sunday we stopped at a fruit stand to buy a few "just picked" fruits and then drove back over Highway 2. That was a pretty drive and not much traffic either. The Westy did great averaging 20+mpg for the trip.
