and here we go

MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK -- The word sequestration sends shivers down the spine of anybody who's work depends on federal funding.

Effects of the stalemates in Washington D.C. are having a direct impact on one of "this" Washington's most beloved natural treasures.

No amount of governmental goofiness can shut down the sheer majesty of our lovely looming neighbor.

But it can chip away at our access to Mount Rainier National Park and that's exactly what's happened.

"Well we had a 5 percent budget cut this year due to sequestration and we had to make some hard choices," Patti Wold, a spokeswoman for Mount Rainier National Park, said.

The park has more than $600,000 less to work with this year than last year.

And they had $500,000 less to work with last year than they did in 2010.

"Well yeah, definitely we're feeling it," Wold said. "As you can see its reflected in our services that we're able to offer."

Something's gotta give.
