We left home Monday morning and headed out for a short trip to a place with no phone service, not television and no internet. Off the grid completely. Thanks to our son for giving us an opportunity to enjoy a little peace and quiet with no electronic gizmos.
Our destination was the National Inn at Longmire, Washington which is part of the Mount Rainier National Park. It is on the way to the Paradise side of the mountain. Developed by James Longmire in the late 1800's as a Medical Springs it is now a National Historic Landmark. During the early years of the part, Longmire was the headquarters of the facility. The original administration building stands and the National Inn is a concessioner-operating hotel and restaurant that is open year round.
The Inn is basically rooms, some with attached and others with shared bathrooms or shower rooms. We had a room with a private bath, but it is just that, a room. Bed, dresser, a chair, and that is all the comforts you have. There is a coffee maker, hair dryer but no television and internet access doesn't exist. Phone service stops about the time you enter the park.
Hope all is well and thanks for dropping by.
