Hiking to the Gobblers Knob Fire Lookout, which stands near Mount Rainier. The lookout has a wonderful history and one of the most spectacular views in the USA; the approach trail skirted two subalpine lakes and was filled with wildflowers.

We watched two Cascade Foxes at close range in Mount Rainier National Park; one had the dark Silver Fox coloration, and the other had the more typical reddish coloration. We watched one stalking a mouse under the snow, then pouncing on it; but we also observed the foxes scavenging in a parking lot and taking food from an outstretched hand–not a good idea!

During a recent winter trip to Mount Rainier National Park, encountered crystalline skies, plus the magic of seeing a Silver Phase Red Fox for the first time.
