The piglets are enjoying their summer! Along with the misting system Brian installed we had a huge downpour of rain last week so the pigs pen is basically one big mud puddle. It's nasty and they love it!
Maddy had an encounter with a porcupine the other morning...I am going to say the porcupine won this time. Brian and I pulled about 4 of them out with the pliers and she wasn't having anymore of it. Off to visit our favorite vet...I think we counted 30 total. Atleast they weren't in her mouth and tongue. Just on the end of her nose.
We have some awesome mountains in Washington! Can you believe none of us had ever been to Mt. Rainier either! What a perfect opportunity to seize the day! Again this was a magnificent drive up the mountain! I wish I had more pictures of the drive, but handling a bike and taking pictures probably isn't a good idea!
This was the last leg of our trip and from here we headed home! It was an awesome 4 days! Can't wait for the next road trip!
On the way to the top of St. Helens there are a few random tourist stops...this was particularly interesting...it had a giant big foot, with lots of big foot memorabilia, and big foot tshirts. I found this very amusing!
We all decided he kinda looked like a friendly big foot!
This restaurant sits 19 miles up the road to St. Helens which is why is was called 19 Mile Restaurant. They had awesome home made cobbler and a view of the river!
Believe it or not, all 4 of us have never been to Mt. St. Helens, it is right in our backyard (basically) and how many other volcano's have erupted in the US...not many! Besides seeing the Mt. this drive to the top was INCREDIBLE and beautiful!
The sheer force and heat of the volcano eruption blew trees into splinters and scattered them for miles. There are still tree stumps and scattered logs from 1980!
