Great views of the SW aspect of Mount Rainier.  Ideally we will use the Lake Allen off trail route for the ascent, and the Boundary Trail route for the descent.  [DJM: this trip is an alternate destination for an Enchantment Traverse scramble that has been postponed until 2019 due to the impact of forest fire smoke on air quality]
