Once back at the parking area the family loaded up in the rig as I talked with Deputy Sutliff from the Yakima County Sheriff”s Office about some Yakima/Kittitas Forest Watch Association stuff.

We headed out and decided to go check out some of the area. Our first stop was at Raven Roost. The clouds covered Mt. Rainier so the view was not as great as it could have been.

It was cold at Raven Roost so only Monster and I got out.

We headed back down the mountain and stopped to let the kids run.

After a short break we headed on down.

We swung through Long Meadow came to fine most campers were gone and some left their campfires burning.

The Forest Service was there putting them out.
