Tiger Mountain

Okay - one more quick post while we are cleaning up. The hike was up to Poo Poo Point on Tiger Mountain in Washington state. It was a great hike that culminated in some interesting sites. Beautiful view of Mt Ranier over a hazy valley - too mid-day to get a good photo, but still a nice sight. Also saw a ton of people paragliding. I never heard of it before, but it is basically chilling in a big parachute from what I could tell.

It was pretty cool. Some of the folks had cool nicknames like "Hillbanger." Got some photos, we'll see how they turn out.

At the top, we were approached by people asking us if we wanted a ride down ... we soon found it that people drive up to the top in trusty 4WD vehicles and jump off in hang or para gliders and need others to drive their vehicles to the base. Orf, being a good samaritan kinda guy, offered to drive a vehicle down. It took a lot longer than expected, and we got stuck behind a locked gate that our key was too stubborn to unlock. Fortunately, there was someone else 15 min behind us who let us out. At any rate, we are now very late for dinner and I am quite hungry. So, for real now (I think), the next post will be from Hawaii.


Uncle Jabbour & I just caught up on your trip - how exciting! We love you and enjoy biking in Hawaii (as well as the wedding of course!)Aloha, Aunt Cheryler & Uncle Jabbour
