Tamanos is a moderate scramble and one of the Mt Rainier 100.

We will plan to use the Owyhigh Lakes TH (on the White River Road).  The road is scheduled to close for the season Oct 30.  Looks like the weather forecast is good.


If the road is closed, or the weather is not good, we will choose an alternate destination.
