Seattle was everything I expected it to be: beautiful, charming, and a bit grey. We had a ball exploring the city, taking the ferry over to Bainbridge Island (where Corey basically got offered a job and I was confused as to why he didn’t take it immediately), eating all of the food in sight, and attending our cousin Matt’s lovely wedding on Lake Washington. One of our most memorable experiences was driving up to the Sunrise Visitor Center, which admittedly sounds like a home for the elderly. On our last day of the trip, Meg, Chris, Corey, my parents, and I crammed into the rental van (with Corey stuffed in the back with the coats) and drove 2 hours from Seattle and up a very large mountain to find ourselves at the most spectacular view of Mount Rainier and the cascades. We were so high up that my dad, who apparently has a fear of heights that I was completely unaware of, had to stop driving. We spent a couple of hours hiking around and just being in awe. You really can’t believe how big it is. For just a couple of minutes, we were even able to see the peak of Mount Rainier, which is mind blowing. If you look at the first image below, you can just barely make out the peak. All of these were shot on my Mamiya 645 with Fuji 400h or Portra 400.
