Moderate Pace. Great flowers , views of Mt. Rainier, and two alpine lakes on the new nicely graded Ira Spring Memorial trail. This is a much easier and better constructed trail than the old Mason Lake trail that went straight up. We will visit Mason and little Mason lakes. Some snow is possible in the lake basin.
