Jess Bow Travels - Mt. Rainier | Washington

Mt. Rainier | Washington

Jason and I have a new goal; to visit as many US National Parks (there are 58) as possible over our lifetime! Mt. Rainier was one of the National Parks at the top of our listMt. Rainier | JessBowTravelsWe booked a few nights at a charming little cabin in the woods of Ashford, a small town outside of Mt. Rainier. We stayed in the “Wild Bird” cottage and loved everything about it!Cabin | JessBowTravelsWild Bird Cabin | JessBowTravelsJess Bow Travels | Wild Bird CottageRainierFlowers | JessBowTravelsRainierCabin | JessBowTravelsCabinJessBowTravelsCollageIt was such a relaxing retreat full of beautiful flowers, songbirds, lush foliage, and crisp mountain air. Right behind the Cabin was a trail through the forest, which we spent the majority of our time wandering through.Ashford | JessBowTravelsJessBowTravelsWe never once saw another person, it felt we had the entire forest to ourselves!

We never turned on the TV and we had no phone service. It was perfect!RainierCabin | JessBowTravelsJessBowTravels | Cabin LivingRainierCabin | JessBowTravelsWe had planned on going on a few Mt.
