A Magical Day at Mount Rainier’s Author Event

Sometimes and author event is…magical.

On April 16, 2022, I traveled with my family, including our two grown children, to Mount Rainier National Park for a book signing of IF I WERE A PARK RANGER.

The occasion – Junior Ranger Day, part of National Park Week. The book, of course, fit perfectly with this theme.

We arrived early and dined in the just-open-again-after-Covid restaurant at the National Park Inn. Then I headed to Longmire General Store for the signing.

The staff provided a lovely table, right at the front door. The Longmire General Store showcased a kind of national park rustic style, with wooden beams, walls and floor and a stone fireplace. And through the windows I could see the snow fall. Lots and lots of beautiful snow.

Thank you to the staff of Longmire General Store and the National Park Inn, and to the people who stopped in to have a book signed. I love talking to guests about what brought them to that park and all the other national parks they have visited.

Then, following the event we explored the truly amazing park.

I hope you have the opportunity to visit this lovely place. And if you’re lucky, it might snow for you, too.
