One of my favorite hike in Mount Rainer National Park. Starts off with some nice exercise on switchbacks through forest, along with some views of the mountain. Then passes through more open areas with trees with wild flowers, and finally to the very accessible lake basin with picturesque surrounding peaks. If it is hot day you might want to go in for a swim - many of us did last year at this time, and it was great! Stay together pace. Cell & home: (253) 797-4895.
