I forgot to get this post up for the August 3, 2019 Thursday Doors posting and I tried to beat the clock but it was impossible to do it within a minute so I’m preparing this for the next opportunity as I will also be travelling next week and might not be able to post it then.
This was related to my last post when we were in the state of Washington, visiting Mt. Rainier. After a day of exploring and trying to find “that” photo, we decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner in the National Park and what better place to have that but in Paradise. The Paradise Inn just reopened after undergoing an extensive renovation; information about that renovation can be read at this link: Paradise Inn Renovation
We didn’t stay at the Paradise Inn or get a chance to wander around the complex too much except for visiting the Paradise Inn’s Dining Room which reminded me of Yosemite National Park’s “Ahwahnee Hotel”; the Paradise Inn’s Dining Room building looks a bit smaller but still exhibits that experience that makes you comfortable and want to hang out in a historic mountain lodge.
This was the look of the Paradise Inn Dining’s building as we walked there.
As you enter the building, you’re greeted with the look of high open ceiling trusses with a lot of wooden beams and logs, cozy furnishings and chairs to lounge while taking a break or waiting for the restaurant to open, gift shops, a fireplace and someone playing music at the piano.
And then, you find that fantastic set of wooden glass doors that lead you into the dining room.
My photos of the dining room ended at this point because it was time to eat and put the photo gear away for now.
Thank you for visiting my post and thanks again to Norm 2.0 for his creation of the Thursday Doors website that gives us bloggers an outlet to let our thoughts be put on paper or in this case, web space. For more posts and photos of doors by others please go to: Thursday Doors.
