There’s a lot of fun in being a tourist in the city nearby you. Often I forget to appreciate the attractions that are in my backyard because I take them for granted. I definitely take for granted my view of Mt. Rainier all the time. As you can tell, that’s what I did this past weekend. My friend and I took the 595 bus (you can also take the 590) into downtown Seattle. It’s actually a really easy thing to do and since Metro Transit busses run later than Pierce (the busses in Tacoma) we weren’t pressed for time and got to enjoy everything. It was raining and windy but we didn’t let the weather stop us!
